We used to plant squash directly in the ground, and are experimenting with starting the seeds in peat pots this spring. We decided to extend the experiment to one type of bean, as we've been having problems with predators eating bean plants.
Swiss chard and carrots are germinating, meantime. The opening of our community garden was delayed this year because of a water pipe problem, and we are trying to make up for lost time.
Our ginger is planted - yes, you can grow it in upstate New York.
Happy Wednesday, whether you garden or not.
