I chose to plant much of my garden REALLY early.
In Minnesota, the Frost Date (and planting date) usually looms around May 31st.
I planted early April.
What I figured was, Heck – My plants are mostly seed, and I’m using 2-3 seeds out of an entire bag of seeds – so… If it frosts between now and then, I’ll pull everything, and start when everyone else starts! If not, I’m ahead of the game. Big time.
And guess what?
I’m WAYYYY ahead.
Things started popping up rather quickly for me. Our soil content was good – fresh – and awesome.
A few seedlings turned into a few bigger plants … and then I got brave, and purchased a few tomato plants, and a pepper plant.
I’ve got in here:
Strawberries, Onions, Lettuce (head and leaf), Carrots, Bush Beans, Sugar Snap Peas, Peppers, Cherry Tomatoes, Grape Tomatoes, and Big Boy Tomatoes, Cucumbers, and Zuchhini. In that order.
Oh yeah, and I also started my Herbs box. Like that it’s on an automated watering system?? I do!
In here there is Chives, Dill, and Cilantro. Looks cute and perfect now….
It’s funny how one forgets that things grow larger… You know?
Keep coming back – I’ve got MUCH more to talk about!
