    We have ours planted! My tomatoes are about 12-18” high. Sweet bells a little taller. Banana peppers the same. Bush and pole beans are showing, zucchini’s and cucumbers are going well.
    Asparagus (first year) is slowly coming in, rhubarb is doing well.
    I think the grand solar minimum is going to play a part this year, so we will see!
    In early 1800’s Lewis and Clark wrote about buffalo killing hail storms, and that was a solar minimum, not a grand!
    I have 2nd year peach trees,apple, and a cherry doing well. Added a couple figs and going to plant a couple plums.
    Blackberry,blueberry, grapes are coming along well. The Muscadine and raspberry are growing like gangbusters!
    I am going to build a greenhouse from old windows I collected this year for my wife about 16’ x 12’.

    South Carolina here, I’ll grab some after I finish cutting grass, taking a breakfast break as rain due at noon.
    The humidity is about 150% right now! Lol

    29° here the other morning. Haven't even tilled the garden yet. Hopefully next week. The old saying, plant potatoes on good Friday. Hell the ground was still froze, years past was still snow covered. Very seldom in this area.
