It is April 18 and we are having more snow! This wouldn't be quite so bad if the winter accumulation had melted but we still had over a foot on the ground and at this point I am beginning to wonder if it will ever melt. I have two tables and two shelves of seedlings under lights but they need to get outside and I am not sure when that will happen. I need to plant my cabbage and broccoli seedlings but don't want to start too early. When it looks like things are warming up a bit I will start my vine crops such as squash, melons and cucumbers but I want those on the small side before I set them out. I am concentrating on heirloom vegetables this year and plan to save some of the seeds so I can grow more of them next year. I live in northern Minnesota where we do have long winters but this is ridiculous!
