The days have once again become cold and wet. The beautiful spring like days we had in early March have been replaced (temporarily) with winter like cold and drizzle – ugh. It’s definitely disappointing for the gardener but spring is right around the corner. I can’t wait to see the sun but the wet and soggy days are ideal for one thing – planting seeds of cool weather vegetables! I planted several cool season vegetables yesterday that hopefully we’ll be enjoying this spring on our dinner plates.
Cool Season Vegetables I Planted this Weekend:
- Beets (‘Tall Top early Wonder’
- Radish (‘German Giant’ and ‘Sparkler’)
- Pak Choi (‘Green Fortune’ from Renee’s Seeds)
- Carrot (‘Cosmic Purple’)
My lettuce and spinach are already started in the circular raised bed.
While outdoors I scatter sowed some California poppies and Columbine. We’ll see what happens!
