We are peas; see us sprout

We've had a rainy few days, and it's doing the early plantings a world of good.

Yesterday I was talking with a fellow non-southerner, and she remarked that gardening here was weird. When the seed packet says "Plant as soon as the ground can be worked," what's that supposed to mean? December?

The answer is, as soon as the days start to get noticeably longer. The Extension recommends January 15 for crops that don't mind frost.
