Spring has probably been my favorite gardening season - everything I plant does fairly well. Sometimes I plant broccoli, lettuce, spinach or onions, but I always plant potatoes. One of the reasons I like spring is that it's a little too early for the bugs to be a problem. This year is different - to begin with, we never really had a winter. There were two or three times where we had freezing weather for a few days, but that was it.
I hate to write more about the early heat, but...the mosquitoes have been out in force for a month now. We are approaching the "last expected frost date" for our climate zone - this is usually when we get one last cold snap - but we have had at least one day this week that the temperature was 90 degrees. The only positive weather this spring has been the extra rain - that is nice.
Postscript - apparently, I wrote about this topic before for the master gardener class and posted it here.
