Seeds Started-First Day of Spring

Welcome to the “official” first day of spring!! Lettuce seeds were started indoors on 3/14 and all of those have since germinated and were moved outside to the cold frame.  Seeds of broccoli, cabbage, brussels sprouts, celery, and kohlrabi were started indoors yesterday, 3/19.  I am growing kohlrabi for the first time this year.  I should be receiving my onion plants next week.  I am thankful that the weather has been more like normal for the past week or so.  I noticed that my topsetting onions that were planted last fall have started to push on green top growth and the perennial chives and oregano have started to green up.  In fact, the first harvest of chives might begin in another week of so.  I might try to directly seed some radishes under my plastic covered hoop in the next few days.  Happy spring planting.
