Fenton Friday: Spring has (finally) Sprung!
|Peas - soaked and sprouted pre-planting|
It is a very late start this year. The snow melted and the ground finally started to thaw enough for me to put peas in. This year I'm planting SugarSnap Peas and also some heirloom Sweet Peas for cutting flowers. I added a third kind of pea as well Oregon Sugar Pod II, which are to be picked at flat and tender stage as snow peas. What kinds of peas are you planting?
Leftover from last year in my plot is asparagus, strawberries, parsley, and garlic. I also have a smattering of kale other lettuce greens popping back up.
This coming weekend, we have our first meeting of the plot gardeners for the year. It will be fun to see old friends and to see what new folk have joined us.
It has been a very wet week, so I will wait a few more days then I plan to direct-sow the rest of my cool-season crops -- carrots, radish, lettuce greens, etc. What are you sowing in your vegetable gardens this time of year?
