Yesterday, R planted potatoes and I raked out the other two garden plots. Today, we planted peas. Saj and Karl assisted.
The weather has been beautiful and warm for the last while, and the forecast for the next two weeks looks good. We have gone ahead and have tempted fate by also planting Earliest Mincu cucumber (hybrid), golden beets, lemon balm, opal basil, Tay Belle acorn squash (hybrid), zucchini (unknown variety obtained in a seed trade), Peppermint Stick zinnias, Red Swiss Chard, "Bob Marley" kale, Red Russian kale, and Lacinato Kale. Fingers crossed that temperatures remain above zero from here on out.
