Spring Planting…At Last!

Finally, on the 5th of May, I did our first real planting of the year!

On Sunday, I made my first trip to Helen’s Country Greenhouse just outside of Minto to pick up some cole crops that I didn’t raise from seed: broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage. Kale is another in the same family that we have started in our seed cabinet. It sure feels good to have some ground planted!

For those of you who don’t know, Dave and I like to push the seasons! We have tomato seedlings that could go into the ground right now, if only our garden space wasn’t still so wet. I had marked on the farm calendar to have peas, spinach, radish, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli and carrots in the ground about 3 weeks ago. Our garden still had snow piles 3 weeks ago. Needless to say we’ve been chomping at the bit this year and these photos make me feel a bit better about the season!
