I have created an easy way for my wife to water flowers when the temperature rises about 90 degrees in the next 90 days.I found a 3pt 35 gallon tank likely from a compact sprayer. We added a small marine presure pump 12Volt,and short hose with a watering wand. Put it on the 3pt of the Ford 1210 compact the rest does not need to be explained. We use small sump pump in the Lake to fill the tank. Leaves more time for fishing. Thanks for listening. Burt

Well, yesterday was the 56th day this winter below zero! A new record. Im not thinking flowers yet, her in Wis. we have nearly 70 inches of snow to contend with. Frost is 6 to 8 feet where there is no snow cover. I might have a flower by July.

9N,
This has been the third coldest winter on the books in central Minnesota. Not that we have had extreme cold mornings, but the average has been a "bear"! Forties by early next week so I can venture out to see my shadow and start working in the shop:) It could be worse!!

I grew up in central Minnesota.
I remember as a kid (early 1960s) my cousin was putting in a new fence line - digging post holes by hand.
It was 4th of July weekend and he was still hitting frost 30+" down on corner posts.
I don't remember what the winter was like that year but I do remember all the relatives talking about it at a holiday picnic.
I normally plow gardens and deer plots about the 1st weekend in May.
I suspect it will be later this year.
