Rushing again for my Spring Garden

Almost ready for the Spring Garden

Here we are again – early spring and I’m rushing to get my garden ready to go. Last Fall I started in the right direction – I did a great job of collecting and creating my own compost, I also did a good job of mulching and preparing the beds for the winter.

But what I haven’t done is plan for my spring garden.  So here I am mid-to-late March deciding the what, the where, and the when. Truth be told, I should have started in January or early February. Last weekend I took advantage of some great weather to get a jump start on preparing a few of my raised beds for spring, so at least one to-do is out of the way.
I did take a few notes of what I’d like to raise this year, and one night I did a quick survey of the family to see what they would want. I made some basic decisions – for example last year’s corn experiment, while interesting, wasn’t productive and ended up being a lot of work. No corn this year.

Now I have to get busy

Prompted by Chives beginning to push up and a Groupon from my favorite garden center this morning, I took a hard look at the calendar and realized I’m far behind! I’m especially concerned about some of the early spring garden planting like onions, shallots, and spinach. I also need to inventory tools and supplies – make sure there aren’t any “emergency” runs during the season.

Planning is scheduled for tonight, so expect to see a post in the next few days with my actual plans.

For now enjoy this quick video of what’s going on in my garden right now: (for more videos subscribe to my YouTube Channel)
