What a huge surprise March and April have been, here in the Finger Lakes. John was able to prepare the garden over the Easter weekend. Usually we are well into May before this can happen. Today I planted heirloom Alaska Peas, two 44 ft. rows, with a chicken wire fence in between the two for climbing. Peas are my favorite vegetable and getting it done today was pretty exciting. I think I am going to try and plant a vegetable a day. Spinach, Chard, Onions, Lettuce, Radishes, and New Potatoes should all do well now. Well I have been told anyway. I have never planted this early and am really looking at this early spring as a sign of great gardening year ahead! :)
