Saturday and Sunday was fairly nice although windy. I worked for several hours in the garden over the course of the two days.
I pulled back the straw mulch on three beds and planted a bed of two different kinds of lettuce, a bed of two different kinds of carrots and one bed of bunching green onions.
I've never had trouble growing lettuce, but the carrots and onions are a different story. My thoughts are I have been planting them too late, so this year I planted them real early.
After planting the beds I cover them with some type of wire mesh to keep cats, dogs, rabbits, etc from disturbing my seeds. After the plants are well established I take the wire off.
I've been doing research on potatoes. There are so many different kinds! Early, mid, late; red skinned, russets, blue, purple. It makes my head swim. Determining the best to grow in my area is still on the table. I have already bought yukon gold and red pontiac. I'm wanting a late versatile. One that is good for baking, frying as well as mashed potatoes. Anyone have any suggestions?
What have you planted in your garden as of now? Anything sprouting yet?
