spring planting

It's time! Someday, I'll get my act together to plant some seeds (for cold weather crops) in February, the earliest month recommended for my region.

For this year, though, March will do.

I chose practical crops this year. The past three growing seasons have taught me that I don't have enough sunlight for tomatoes and peppers. Plus, I can't win against the squirrels.

Herbs are a given, and I'm adding tarragon to my mix again this year. Last year's bounty of greens sold me on all sorts: mesclun, arugula, and spinach. Sugarsnap peas, green beans, and a variety of squashes will complete my garden.

Now I need to clean up last year's mess and get busy planting!
