Starting Seeds Feb.2015

Feb. 2015 005

The garden season really  begins this month, here , I know some friends and family will be wondering how we can possibly live in the same country! This year has been terrible out east, much worse than usual, lets hope that will come to an end soon! Its never too early to plan your garden, If you have the space for a couple of trays and provide some good light, you can go a little crazy, like me 🙂

These were started the first week of Feb. : Arugula, Spinach, Mustard Greens, Pak Choi, Corn Salad, Leeks, and a mixture of Onions, Walla Walla, Red, Scallions and Shallots.

The Greens have been transplanted but the Onions will need to stay on the heating pad till they get a little larger …In the meantime all plants are in the garage under light…

Broad Beans were put out in the garden 2 days ago and more seeds will be planted  in the next week , starting with  Tomatoes, Peppers , Eggplant and Basil . I’m going to try something new this year, pre-sprouting Peas, according to garden guru Linda Gilkeson, this the best way to avoid damage by pests that are prevalent in the springs damp soil…I’m hoping that means an early crop 🙂
