spring planting

will it or will it not…stay this warm for another month? a big question as i’ve planted some cool weather crops: potatoes (red pontiac and yukon gold,) onions sets, peas and some lettuce in the greenhouse. i’ve also stuck some chard seeds in the ground, hoping for the best.

indoors, under lights, i have a robust crop of bush tomatoes, peppers, parsnips and cress with some lettuce. if the weather holds i’ll be able to move them to the greenhouse in early april.

last years planting of garlic is looking good, however the leaf tips are yellow and i’m not sure what the cause is.

the rest of the veggie garden has been dug over but i’ll do one more dig to work last falls mulch in a little deeper before planting more seeds.

as for the flower beds…a bit of weeding and a lot of anticipation as to what did or did not survive the ice storm. right now my lavendar and sage plants are looking the worse for wear. the tulips are in full leaf and the daffodils are coming into bloom.
