It’s March Madness!

I’m sure that “March Madness” probably refers to basketball games for most of you. However, in Demo Garden land, March can get pretty crazy with the garden to-do list, let alone everything else. I thought that you might find it interesting to know what is on our “To-Do” list for the first part of spring, rather than seeing the posts about the different projects as we complete them.

This week: Hardening off early kale & lettuce seedlings; ordering compost; making sure seeds are organized for planting

Next week: Adding (and incorporating) compost to top off the raised beds; transplanting kale & lettuce; starting pepper seeds indoors; planting a few seeds and potatoes outdoors; general cleanup and cutting back dead herbs

Week of March 24th: Planting onion plants, bare-root strawberry plants, other cleanup?

Week of March 31st: Starting tomatoes indoors; planting beets, carrots, etc outside

Of course, the big project on the list is getting the compost added and incorporated. Everything else is pretty routine!
