For most of this coming weekend we’re going to have rain. This is our big end of frost weekend and so we had planned a bunch of planting but that might not happen now. Our yard is still a complete mud pit. I may just transfer some seedlings into bigger pots and fertilize them.
What we did get planted this past week after work between the rain storms was onions and beets. I’m glad those are finally in the ground, though they should have gone in a long time ago. I need to start thinking about starting bean and corn seeds but I’m not sure where now that I’ve got seedcorn maggots in the mini greenhouse. I may just wait until the weather warms up a lot more before planting them – mid to late April.
We do need to start working on the barn extension for hay storage, but I’m not entirely sure when that will occur.

Do you (or have you thought about) growing any grains besides corn?
We have. I tried to convince Tom to grow wheat in the front yard. He didn't want to. We don't really have any other place large enough to make it worth it that's available.
It's pissing over here, too. Last night I think I poured 50 gallons of water out of the pooled tarp over the chicken run, when I got home, officially making that part of the yard a swimming hole. The sideyard's swimming hole has something like 100 gallons of water in it. And it's from the patio roof's rain gutter overflowing. Then the front yard is supersaturated and it started seeping into the garage. !?!@)(*!@!
