|Radishes, onions, lettuce, garlic, peas and potatoes are all in the ground.|
This is a firs year bed. I will be doing plenty of weeding and mulching!
3. Start basil, tomato & pepper seedlings - indoors.
|We have started nasturtium too. Well, okay, I confess. I killed my seed sown basil and so I bought a new plant to replace it because I couldn't wait to have fresh basil. It is important to keep your seedlings well watered....trust me|
4. Plant new beds of asparagus, rhubarb & strawberries.
|My asparagus is in the ground. After a few weeks the plants will be up and I will cover them again with the piled up soil.|
6. Fertilize established plants with compost and/or Epsom salts.
7. Divide clumping perennials.
|This bad boy seriously needs to be divided and moved. He also needs the John Deere tractors cleaned out of him.|
9. Plant pansies. Yes, you can do this even if it snows again this week. Lord. please don't let it snow again!
10. Direct sow seed poppies, alyssum, bachelor buttons, cosmos and calendulas.
11. Pull any weeds that have already started. This will save you a lot of headache later on.
12. Remove leaf debris from beds and store for mulch or compost. Check out my free mulch link here!
