It’s Time to Plant Lettuce, Technically.

It’s Time to Plant Lettuce, Technically.

So, technically, today was the day that I had planned to plant my lettuce. In fact, there’s a rather large list of leafy green veggies that are cold tolerant and can be planted early in the spring – before the weather really has the chance to warm up too much. However, something tells me I’m just going to have to wait until the snow melts! I definitely can’t remember ever having this much snow so late in the season. Check out some of the “spring” scenes below!

I planted a rather large lot of seed potatoes this week under this pile of snow. I’m sure they’ll be fine. At least, I hope they’ll be fine. I didn’t anticipate another 4 inches of snow.

The winter sowing containers here are covered with row cover and a layer of plastic. The reason for this is because I have both tomatoes and peppers under here! If it were only cold tolerant plants, I wouldn’t bother to cover them. Since there are tender annuals in there, I absolutely have to cover it. I hope I explained that well enough…
