It's been a month, so I figured it would be a good time to take another walk around the homestead. The point of this blog is to be a digital record for me of what I did when (an online garden journal, so to speak), and it's already proving helpful. For instance, I've heard over and over again how this has been another warm spring. But it's felt much colder to me this year. Sure enough, looking over last year's posts, I can see that things were WAY farther along than they are this year.
I'm looking forward to seeing the garden come alive during the month of March. I've been planting peas and carrots and radishes and will continue to succession-sow them. I've even planted the potatoes that were sprouting in the pantry, so we'll see if they produce. Since I'm not planting broccoli or cabbage this spring (they take up so much room, and are so cheap to buy from local farmers that it's not worth taking up the space), I have more room to plant other things. I'm hoping to get many more carrots, since they aren't so easy to find locally and since they dehydrate so nicely for use in soups and casseroles. I'll also be planting more beneficial flowers this year, especially since the chickens will like them so much!
