I did a lot of reading and charting. Everything indicated that I could start putting plants in the ground mid-March. But, spring was cold so I waited.
I did have grand plans!
I ended up starting to plant on April 10. I started as much as I could from seeds outside. In this first round that included arugula, carrots, lettuce, peas, spinach, and swiss chard. I bought broccoli, parsley, and strawberry plants. On April 11 (and a few more times) we had frost warnings so I covered the plants. I figured the seeds would be fine.
Clearly they were! I used this picture before, but just a reminder that the garden is going gangbusters. It’s gone way further since this was taken.
