A Decent Start

With the beautiful spring weather lately many people have been asking about just when they can get started in their gardens-I managed to find some time this weekend and couldn’t resist getting my hands dirty.

This year I’ve planted:

  • Brussel sprouts
  • brocoli
  • buttercrunch lettuce
  • romaine
  • radicchio
  • spinach
And I still have the kale, rouge d’hiver and swiss chard which all held well over the winter.  The seedlings have enjoyed a phenomenal success rate-although being a little loose handed with the seeds has left me with some tough decisions to make.

And the plum tree has come alive in recent weeks:

    Your seeds have come up so quickly and with great success. Obviously your green house has the ideal heat and protection from the elements. Look forward to their progress. Your outside plants are doing extremely well too. My seeds are still in packages as can’t put out until late May or early June here. I will start them in my house at end of month. The blossoms are so beautiful!

    I checked with our ag agent since the warm weather is so tempting….put in some hardier plants last week. Rest will go in in 2 weeks.
