I’ve been intermittently busy in the garden over the past month.

On Friday, March 16th I planted:

• 1 big pot of GREEN LEAF LETTUCE
• 1 big pot of RED LEAF LETTUCE
• 1 medium pot of TATSOI and BABY BOK CHOY
• 1 big pot of DINO KALE
• 1 big pot of SWISS CHARD
• 2 small pots of SPINACH
• 2 medium and 3 small pots of PARSLEY
• 1 medium pot of GREEN ONIONS

The following day I planted:

• One 4′ row of ENDIVE
• One 4′ row of MUSTARD GREENS
• One 4′ row of BOK CHOY
• One 4′ row of NAPA CABBAGE
• One 2′ row of GREEN LEAF LETTUCE
• One 2′ row of RED LEAF LETTUCE
• One 2′ row of ICEBERG LETTUCE
• Eight mounds of SNOW PEAS

And on Sunday, April 1st I planted:

• One 4′ row of LEEKS
• One 4′ row of YUKON GOLD POTATOES
• One 4′ row of RUSSET POTATOES
• One 4′ row of RED POTATOES
• One 4′ row of ORANGE CARROTS
• One 4′ row of PURPLE DRAGON CARROTS
• One 4′ row of PARISSIENE CARROTS
• Three 4′ rows of PARSNIPS
• Three 4′ rows of SALSIFY
• Three 4′ rows of BEETS (mostly Golden with a few Red and Chioggia mixed in)

I have also harvested the parsnips I left in the ground over winter (delicious), harvested the first few stalks of the aspargus crowns I planted last spring (also delicious), and prepared the new beds  for the blackberry, raspberry, currant, and gooseberry bushes I have ordered (to be delicious someday).
