They say March 17 is the best day to plant peas. Looking at the forecast, I decided to bump that up a bit and planted peas and some other cool crops Saturday in the Potager.
In this box I planted English Peas (Lincoln) with four heads of Oakleaf lettuce inside the tee-pee. In front of the tee-pee I planted 9 turnips. I'm planning on planting a square foot of turnips every week. I can eat 9 turnips a week, but I can't eat 54 all at once! The onions and the scallions spent the day in the garden with me, hardening off. I'm hoping I can plant them next week.
The center section was left unplanted this week. Next week I am hoping to plant some of the onions and spinach there.
The three that I found in the compost pile sprouting did not come up. So that is something I will not do again.
All in all it was a good day in the garden.
