All the seeds that say “Plant in early spring as soon as soil can be worked,” can be planted now. Lettuce can be planted under a tobacco cloth to protect it from frosty temperatures.

The first row has scallions, both red and white, and radishes. The radishes will be up and pulled before the scallions are ready. The next row was planted with Summer Glory Lettuce and Buttercrunch. There’s a kale plant that lasted all winter marking the place between the two lettuces. The next row had Mesclun and Green Ice.

A friend told me to mix lettuce seeds in cornmeal before planting so the seeds are spaced better. The last planted row is after an application of compost under the raised black plastic. In that row is Bright Lights Swiss Chard. The green plants in the back of the space are chervil that grew all winter long. To the left is another rhubarb plant emerging.

Peas are planted in a shallow trench, then covered. These are the Sugar Sprint.

After they are covered once, more soil can be added to give a better root system and control weeds as the peas grow. The sticks and rocks at the back are placed on mulching plastic and newspaper to control weeds. The board is across each space so I don’t compact the soil.

Now there is also a row of plastic covered compost.


Touchstone Gold and Chioggia beets are planted on this side of the plastic.
