This is a blog about my gardening adventures good and bad, but always fun!

For me March is a very exciting month as a gardener. It is the month in which seed starting is at its peak and also the month in which I can start planting in my garden. Hopefully by the end of March I will be able to till my garden beds and start planting my spring crops. I plan on direct seeding peas, spinach, beets, asparagus peas and sweet peas the last week in March. I will also be planting my broccoli, cabbages, onions and kohlrabi transplants. I am hoping Mother Nature cooperates and it doesn't rain to much this spring! I did some more winter sowing today. I planted three types of lettuce, curly parsley, celery, dill, white borage, okra, nasturtium, zinnias and violas. I used a clear tote and seed starting containers. I also transplanted my cabbage, purple cauliflower and onion seedlings into larger containers and moved them outside into a clear tote. I have to say using these clear totes as mini greenhouses/cold frames has really freed up space in my indoor greenhouse with grow lights and also increased the amount of plant varieties I am growing this year.
Purple Cauliflower, Orient Express Cabbage, Early Jersey
Wakefield Cabbage & Walla Walla Onion seedlings.
