It was so gorgeous I couldn't stand it any more! I planted four squares of snap peas and two each of spinach, simpson elite, and romaine lettuce. Maybe next weekend I'll throw my broccoli out there. Smile

I'd had plastic over the bed all winter, and the soil was nice and warm when I lifted it today. Score one for late fall prep - all I had to do was lift the plastic and plant the seeds!

I couldnt take it either Very Happy. Yesterday I put out two tomato transplants and direct sowed squash and cucumber. I was originally going to have zuchinni too but it sort of skipped my attention that it is a squash and needs two squares Shocked. I refuse to give up a tomato square, so no zuchinni. As of now out of 32 squares I have 10 left unplanted. Hopefully be fixing that before the week is over bounce

I am very jealous that you could put out tomatoes already! I would love to do that, but I guess I need to wait another month and a half or so to be safe. Sad

Excellent work! I don't blame you for getting an early start. You'll be snacking on snap peas before too long.
Hopefully I will be putting my seedlings and sowing seeds in my cold frame this weekend. We've had Two days in a row over 65 here in southcoastal mass. Back to normal through the weekend. Bring on the cold weather crops.

Here is my plot plan:

Our last frost date technically goes to about the 24th but I really think we have had our last for the winter. Nature could always prove me wrong but I think Im safe. *knocks on wood* Wink

so moswell, did you just have clear plastic? over the soil?
That sounds so perfect, just lift the plastic and plant the seeds, almost too good to be true..

Yep, the plastic I had over the box (after I removed last seasons' plants and put in fresh compost) was just a 6mm-think plastic dropcloth I bought at Home Depot. It kept the MM in the box from being washed away during the winter and I was really surprised at how warm the soil was when I lifted the plastic off. I don't know why, it's just a greenhouse effect, but it was still pretty neat. Hopefully that warm soil will give my plants a nice boost!

I can't remember if I read about that trick in the book or on this board, but either way, I will repeat it again next year.

I planted some scallions and some dwarf carrots last weekend. I've got a grand plan to use these industrial light fixtures I scrounged up last fall to make little boxes for herbs this year. The problem is, I need to make more Mel's Mix and my local garden shop (Ferris Farms) that carries vermiculite isn't quite ready yet.

I'm itching to get those ready, but I think it's going to have to wait until next weekend, since I'm out of town this weekend.

I'm a little more north than you, but the warm weather has been more than I could stand. I finally broke down and planted a BigBoy and then wrapped Saran Wrap around a cage to use as protection in the event of a freeze. I just couldn't take it any more! lol!

Yeah, I planted everything today too. I ignored what all the books have said... I think this year is going to be hot and dry. I'm planning accordingly.
