Last year without much success, I tried to do some spring gardening. I got jealous of my neighbors with their lush lettuces and stone age size cabbage heads while I declared victory with some micro broccoli rabe. I enjoyed it, but the kale, lettuce, onions, spinach and potatoes I planted either died or didn’t do very well.
Undaunted, because as a gardener that come with the plot, I jumped right in this year the weekend after my plot was ready. Today. I just about wrapped up the early planting. I’m happy to say that I have the following in the ground;
- Blue Adirondack Potatoes
- Crapaudine beets
- Belgium White Carrots
- Purple Dragon Carrots
- Tasco Celery
- Tabris Beans
- Purple Pak Choy
- Red, Golden and Candy Striped beets, they were some beet seedlings that I’m trying and that’s all I could find out about them
- Romaine Lettuce
- Red Zeppelin Onions
I’m impressed with myself. I’ve never had this much in the ground so early, and my garden plot in such a manageable position. I’m out ahead of the weeds, and I have some rapidly growing tomato plants that will be going in at least 10 days earlier than I planed. Black plastic will go down next weekend, which will heat the soil, and the following weekend they go in. I anticipate that they will be very happy.
So that’s it for now. I hope your gardens are moving along.
