March Garden Log.

As well it should be, March was a busy planting month!

3/5/12: Planted seedlings, cilantro (seeded 1/21), one single Crisphead lettuce (12/29), Fiesta broccoli (1/21), Red Head quinoa (1/28), purple kohlrabi (1/21), winter red kale (1/28), Parel cabbage (1/21), Butterhead lettuce (1/28).

3/6/12: Soaked Cascadia snap peas and Alderman shelling peas 24 hours in innoculant and kefir water (it was an experiment!).

3/7/12: Planted pea seeds outside.

3/8/12: Planted globe artichoke (1/28) starts outside.

3/9/12: Planted two asparagus crowns. Fingers crossed that they take!

3/13/12: Planted Roodnerf brussel sprouts (seeded 1/28), Brilliant rainbow quinoa (1/21), Saratoga cabbage (1/21), Mammoth red rock cabbage (1/21).

3/17/12: First harvest of Fizz kale (12/29). Served in a fresh salad tossed with olive oil and vinegar.

3/18/12: Sowing Cherry bell radishes in containers outdoors.

3/23/12: Transplanted basil starts from January…I have been harvesting them and finally got around to potting them! The hubs also turned the potato bed, and I hope to get them in the first weekend of April.

3/24/12: I started more basil seeds. Hey, this is as about as on top of basil as I have ever been, but I love the stuff! I also seeded tomatoes, tomatillos, peppers, beets, carrots and soaked more peas (I think the other ones drown in all the March rain we have been having.)

Happy planting!
