The first crop to see the soil in the beginning of March was members of the Allium family: onions in reds, yellows, whites, and the always delicious leek! It’s no wonder that onions were worshiped by the Ancient Egyptians; you can hardly cook a good meal without them.
The greenhouse is full of warm-weather loving seedlings including hot chilies, sweet peppers, tomatoes of all kinds, parsley, basil, and a hearty selection of flowers.
The hardening–off area holds flats of beets, cabbages, head lettuce, chard, and broccoli that are just hankering to get their roots in the field.
What else is growing? This last Sunday we planted cilantro, sugar snap peas, green onions, French Breakfast radishes, salad, spicy mustards, arugula, spinach, and green onions. These spring crops enjoy cooler soil temperatures and can usually withstand a light freeze.
