One of the mistakes I made with my first ever veggie garden last year was planting leafy greens too late. I didn't get much of a crops before the weather got too hot and everything bolted. Either last spring was exceptionally warm, or this one has been colder than usual. Either way, I was planning on getting things on track much earlier this year, but since we just barely got rid of the snow this week, there was no way for me to plant anything before today. The ground was completely frozen even a week ago.
The weather forecast looks very promising now, though. I planted two types of lettuce, spinach, kale, arugula and pok choy. I hope I am early enough to get a decent crops, but late enough to avoid any frost that might still follow. Luckily lettuce seeds can even germinate on ice, and most greens tolerate moderate frost reasonably well. I still have plenty of seeds to spare even if the weather gets colder again and I lose the greens I planted today. I was going to plant my radishes and peas today as well, but that will have to wait until later this coming week.Blue, the little helper:
Spring is here, finally!
