“Island Garden Song,” Mountain Goats.
I am not the most patient when it comes to springtime and gardens and tilling the soil. So I consider it no small feat to have made it until today to begin planting seeds.
But, oh, seed planting has officially begun!
This is mostly for our own record, but in case anyone is interested in one house’s impatient spring planting schedule, here you have it:
- 3/3: Start indoors the first round of “earlies” to be transplanted to the hoop house (Oregon snap peas, Cascadia snap peas, spinach, lettuce-gourmet blend, lettuce-black seeded simpson)
- 3/8: Start indoors the second round of “earlies” to be transplanted to the hoop house
- 3/17: Start indoors the third round of “earlies” to be transplanted to the hoop house; transplant first batch of hoop house plants outside, and plant beet and carrots directly into hoop house soil. Start indoors ALL other seeds.
The part I’m most excited about is the “START ALL OTHER SEEDS” bit on 3/17. That’s also the weekend before the chicks arrive – I am pee-my-pants excited about that part, too.
