It’s building up. The tension is increasing. It’s straining… soon it’s going to… spring!!!
Seed starting is well under way here. We have a full tray of tomatoes and one of peppers. We’ve also started several 4″ pots of leeks and scallions, plus some sunflowers.
The latter we could have waited and direct planted, but we will use a lot of them so we figured we’d get an early small crop and just keep planting throughout the season for an extended harvest.
In about a week it’ll be time for the Brussels sprouts and broccoli to be started, and not long after that, the garden itself will get some seeds.
Looking at the amount we have already started, and the huge stack of unopened seed packets, it’s clear I will need to clean and prepare at least two more garden beds. The alliums can’t go next to the legumes and the sunflowers can’t go next to anything. Wait, three. Asparagus.
Seems I’ve got my work cut out for me!
