Spring is coming fast. The blueberry bushes have leaf buds (above). The flowering quince at the side of the house is about to bloom. I planted our first seed starts this morning.
The plan for seed starting is...
1/30/10 - 6 celery (Utah 52-70) and 50 onions (Talon)
2/27/10 - 12 cabbage (Derby Day), 12 basil (Sweet Basil), 12 tomatoes (10 Nova, 1 Oregon Cherry, 1 Siletz), 4 peppers (California Wonder 300), 2 eggplants (Millionaire), 2 cauliflower (Snow Crown), 2 broccoli (Thompson)
4/3/10 - 14 squash (2 Black Beauty zucchini, 2 Yellow Crookneck, 4 Mesa Queen acorn, 2 Fairy, 2 Banana Pink Jumbo, 2 Small Sugar pumpkin), 2 melons (Tigger), 4 cucumber (Wautoma)
To be direct sown are green beans, edamame, fava beans, black-eyed peas, carrots, corn, garlic, lettuce, snow peas, peas, beets, radishes, spinach, and potatoes.
We're also putting in asparagus crowns in about a week. We also hope to get the grapes in this early spring - Interlaken or Niagara, Elizabeth or Fredonia, and Gewurztaminer.
