Onions are just starting up!
may there be many more sprouts ...
To the garden we go! Spinach has been planted, half row of Tangy Mesclun Salad Mix, pea netting in place. Ready to plant pea seeds as soon as they arrive!
It's much warmer than usual this season, how does that figure in your planting?
Normally this time of year the ground is still frozen and can't be worked. What I'm planting now can be planted as soon as the soil can be worked, even if we may have another cold snap. Pea seeds expected today so they will go in this afternoon.
I set up a calendar with planting/starting dates back from our last expected frost dates. This year I'm going with earlier expected frost date for the calendar.
Seeds have different ideal germination temperature ranges, As you can see spinach will do well at current ground temps. Carrots best wait probably a month.
1/2 Row of Snap Peas planted today, gonna plant the 2nd half in 2 to 3 weeks to extend the crop.
Broccoli, Swiss Chard, and lettuce seeded in flats.
Getting ready to plow the fields. Front weight mount fabricated for a Cub Cadet using the front of a wide frame mule drive and a weight mount from a new Cub Cadet.
I suppose it's less messy than a couple of plow horses.
