2017 Garden

For the first time ever I tilled the garden yesterday on February 22nd. Never in my life have I till the garden in February. Due to the absence of winter this year here in zone 5a I decided to do it. I may have to till it again in April or May just before planting to eliminate any weeds that will sprout by then.
We just had 6 days in a row of 60+ degree temps with 4-5 record highs set when the average high is 37*F for this area.
I was tempted to plant some radishes just to try my luck but decided not to. Normally mid to late April is radish planting time.
