2017 – Thinking About First Planting

This is where the  Fran's Victory Garden 2017 Plan Planting Dates on the GrowVeg GardenPlanner comes in super helpful. I was getting ready for the Spring planting March 15th. The ground hog saw his shadow and we are getting his six more weeks of winter. I can't see the ground for a half a foot of snow.  The forecast has a frost down in the teens at dawn on March 23rd, five days from now. The forecast is mild until then. I'll start planting later that day. Now I will sprinkle some BBQ ash on the snow to encouraging melting where planting is planned.

The planting will include more roots for asparagus and raspberry plants. Here is the list:

  1. Arugula from the starter trays, I will do this last in case planting takes me several days.
  2. Asparagus from roots I have to purchase. I will be adding to an existing patch.
  3. Brussels Sprouts from the starter trays.
  4. Cabbage (Summer) from the starter trays.
  5. Cauliflower from the starter trays.
  6. Lettuce (Leaf) from seed.
  7. Peas from seed.
  8. Raspberry from starter plants I have to purchase.
  9. Spinach from seed.
