Ostara Planting!

Ostara (Spring Equinox)

Yes, today is the Spring Equinox, which means plant those pumpkins! 😉

The ground is still frozen, although some crocuses have come up, and some of the mix of tulips, glory-of-the-snow, and crocuses from The Arbor Day Foundation planted last fall are struggling through.

The tulips planted in pots and overwintered in the garage have huge leaves, but I don’t see any flower buds, which I find disturbing. Thoughts?

I planted seeds inside, in small pots, to get them started:
Radish (I am the only person on the planet who has trouble growing radishes)
Roma Tomato
Romaine Lettuce
Little Fingers Carrots
Beefsteak Tomatoes
Baby Leaf Spinach
Mesclun Spicy Greens
Chucky Pumpkin
Buttercrunch Lettuce
Racer Pumpkin
Speckled Butterhead Lettuce
Bok Choy

The peppers, lemon, and clemetine seeds I planted from actual food the past few months are thriving.

Here’s to hoping a cold winter brings a great growing season!
