Is it spring yet?
I was wandering around this past weekend without a jacket, so it certainly seems like spring. We’ve started to order seeds – though I need to find a source for purple seed potatoes – so that makes it seem like spring. There’s only a tiny bit of snow anywhere, so that looks springlike, right?
But it’s not yet March, and I live in the northeast. It’s not spring until May, most years. You don’t plant without some sort of covering until Memorial Day weekend (May 30th, this year). And our last frost date is in mid-May.
Still, I can start planning. Planning is easy.
So what should I plant this year?
P.S. My kale lasted till mid-February again this year before it started to turn brown on the tops. Definitely planting kale again.
P.P.S. We still have a few apples from our biggest tree sitting on the kitchen counter.
