Planting Calendar

It is so confusing to me because so many calendars are alphabetical, but I like to see things by month so I made my own calendar. :)

Clean up and planting

I cleaned up the garden today, and directly sowed peas, spinach, arugula, carrots, kale, and broccoli.

Better Homes and Gardens always has great ideas for the garden, but these recycled plastic flowers made from toys and other materials are very cool.

Last Wednesday, February 2, I planted several varieties of seeds for microgreens, and they started sprouting this weekend. Arugula poked through the dirt first, followed by broccoli, peas, and finally spinach. In less than a week we should have some edible greens!

Yes, we had a blizzard!
