Lots of stuff in the garden now either as seed or as transplants. We’ve had a crazy nice stretch of weather here in Connecticut which has probably lulled me into a sense of frost forgetfulness. We shall see…
1. More peas. Planted a bunch of peas on the 14th. I made a quick trellis using twine and bamboo poles. Two basic varieties – carouby de maussanne and cascadia. I love peas and I’ve got more going in an earthbox on my deck.
2. Lettuce mix. A handful of transplants and also seeds in on the 14th of a mesclun mix from the Gastrocast special seed offer from Seeds From Italy.
3. Kale from seed also from the Seeds From Italy thing. Just a couple of feet of kale plantings.
4. Spinach. Space Saver and tyee also planted on the 14th. I’d say about two long rows of that. Love spinach.
5. Onions. Transplants. Just a small bunch since I tend not to like the one-and-done kind of veggies; I prefer stuff that keeps producing. (Carrots and radishes are the big exception to this rule for me. Love those.) Planted on the 14th.
6. Leeks. Same as above.
7. Chard. From seed on the 14th in a nice long row and from transplants today (4/20).
8. Onion sets. I’ve never done this before and wanted to give it a try. I’ll keep them in to have a handful of onions to store.
9. Potatoes. I put in some nice blue potatoes and some regular old potatoes too. Did that today.
10. Broccoli. Just two transplants on the 14th. I’ve got some others started and we’ll see if they will make it.
I still need to work on improving the soil – especially before tomatoes go in. I’ll do some beans, beets, carrots and more greens through this week.
