Gardening Season Has Officially Begun!

Gardening Season Has Officially Begun!


Just a couple of weeks behind schedule, all of my garden seedlings have been planted! It doesn’t look like much, but yesterday morning I planted 7 heirloom tomato varieties, Purple Beauty peppers, 3 winter squashes (Sugar Pie Pumpkin, Butternut, Delicata) Sugar Baby watermelons, Far North melons, Couer de Boeuf des Vertus cabbag, Green Sprouting broccoli, Purple of Sicily cauliflower and too many herbs to name.

Spring snuck up on us all this year and my outdoor garden is actually ready for planting my frost-hardy and early spring veggies already! I can hardly believe it, but I’m eager to get out there and start getting all of my direct-seed crops into the ground. I’m dreaming of snap peas and baby lettuce and fresh radishes…

Speaking of gardening season, you can find me over at Simple Organic today, talking about 5 Gardening Basics for Beginners.

  1. We’re in for an early spring too, its all melting…but still a lot to go. Considering that last year the ice broke up in May, this is looking like it might be early April instead…but there is still about 1 foot of snow everywhere. I really, really need to think about my garden. Its been harder last year and this year since last I was busy with a new baby and now with an active toddler…I can’t believe its March already. I ummmm…actually haven’t ordered my new seeds. SO that is next. Oops!

  2. This is our first year with a “real” garden, hopefully! My tomato seedlings are doing great, but not my poor peppers!

    I’m using the method of square foot gardening in raised beds since our soil is very poor. Crossing my fingers!

  3. I wish I was going to have a “real” garden this year, but I’m hoping to at least plant flowers. We have so much going on right now, with getting ready to go to China to adopt our daughter, things are crazy! But hopefully next year we will; we grew a few things last year and my then 5-year-old son loved it!

    Hope your gardens are blessed this year!
