Well the ground is starting to unfreeze. It unfreezes from the brick path and works its way toward the neighbor's fence. I was being optimistic and uncovered the whole length of the pea bed and fertilized. Then I started to turn the soil over. Well the first 9' were unfrozen. So I decided to at least plant half of the bed.
I'm so excited. My first seeds are in the ground. The weather looks promising. From now on, everyday that I have time and the weather is decent, I'll be out preparing the soil and getting more seeds in the ground. I still need to plant carrots in front of the peas. And the spinach when that bed defrosts. And radishes and turnips. These can all be put out pretty much as soon as the soil defrosts. For plants I have my onions, first lettuces, and first baby Asian greens almost ready to be planted. I can't wait until I can pick these. Not even H-mart had mizuna for sale around here. Last year it was my favorite plant. I wonder which one will be this years favorite? Every year it seems to change.
