Spotted some buds on one of our pecan trees today. That means, according to my dearly departed grandmother, that the winter weather is over -- no more hard freezes.

Once when my New England MiL was visiting during cold weather, she spotted clover in my lawn and pronounced it a sign of Spring. She wasn't used to it on a Winter lawn.

A girl I knew always said not to plant anything until after St. Patrick's Day.

Sounds about right. I think mid-March is the last freeze date for the Gulf coast. Here the last freeze date is April 15 and since Easter is usually somewhere in the first weeks of April, (I know it can be March), it's a pretty good rule of thumb here to say Easter is the planting date.

I think it's officially March 15 here. Port Arthur sages always said to put in warm weather veggies on Good Friday.

I plan to plant lettuce and peas this week-end. A little late, but I just got my elevated beds built. Oh, and I built my compost bins too!
