Planting in the Garden in March?

Hard to believe it is still March. It is 72 degrees right now.

I got out in the garden this afternoon and planted sugar snap peas, lettuce and radishes.

It just felt so good to be out there actually digging in the soil. Gardening is the best cure for anything that ails you. I love it.

All of my cabbage family plants inside are doing well 10 days after planting.

And look - a tomato plant is pushing its way up - this is Golden Rave. I'm sure the other tomato varieties will be up soon also.
The peppers aren't showing any signs of germinating yet - but they are always the last to come up.
And here they all are - in my egg carton planters - they will be tall before you know it!

Nice blog. Hard work always pay. Expecting the picture of blooms on your upcoming blog. Thanks for the inspiration of growing seedlings in egg carton

It is nice to see you out in your garden, planting away. :-) My peas are up about 2 inches now, and the spinach about 1 inch. I agree...there's nothing like garden therapy!

It's crazy how warm it is. I keep second guessing myself.

But today I planted out pea and lettuce sprouts, kale, radish, spinach, cilantro, parsley, and thyme seeds.

I hope you're enjoying the weather as much as I am.

Did you start your peas indoors or sow directly in the ground?

I sowed them directly in the ground. Peas are not generally started indoors since they like the cooler weather.
