Whenever we move our clocks forward in the spring is when I start thinking about the garden. I probably should start thinking about it a little earlier, but since I’m just a hobby gardener and not trying to fully feed the family from the garden, I can afford to be a little lazy.
Last year I didn’t have a garden, because of a back injury that left me unable to do any real manual labor for like 3 months, and I missed it more than I thought I would. This year, I am determined to have one, but now I’ve got to figure out what to plant and like fast…I’m already behind starting my seedlings and March 17th is coming up fast (the traditional day to plant English peas around here).
So, what am I going to plant? I know one thing for sure, I will be planting those black heirloom tomatoes that were all the rage at the Farmers’ Markets last summer.
