Spring has officially arrived with my first stop at our local ice cream shop. A hot fudge sundae with vanilla ice cream in case you were wondering.
Saturday I started planting the garden. I put in two rows of peas.
I will plant another two rows next week. Hopefully, I will have several weeks of fresh peas.
I also planted red, yellow, and white onion sets. Following my plan there are three rows of onions at “the bottom” of the garden. I measured out a foot and planted a couple of rows.
The garden plan calls for onions on two sides, so I used on side to plant four feet of shallots. I am new to growing shallots so it will be interesting to see how they do.
Today, I spent the afternoon working with my seedlings under the grow lights. I over seeded the celery thinking fewer seeds would sprout. Today I was able to separate them and put each plant into its own space.
The tomatoes have been growing really well. One pack was particularly tight so I transplanted most of the plants into individual containers. Tomorrow I will pick up some more potting soil so I can transplant the rest of the pack.
There is a mystery plant growing in the garden. While planting onion sets I dug one up to see if I could identify it. I have no idea what it is. Do you?
If you have any ideas I would appreciate them. I hope you are able to get out and enjoy some Spring weather.
Enjoy this season, learn from last season, and look forward to next season.
