for better germination rate on beans in peas don’t forget the chit them. Chitting is very simple,  all you need to do is count out your seeds to be planted then soak them in water for 12 to 24 hous. Rehydrating the seed will give you less spotty germination.

welcoming spring to garden 1

20150307_122740spring has sprung out in the garden! This is the first of 3 gardens I will be managing th is year. I will also be privileged to help out in a community garden as well as a few of my friends gardens. 20150307_122751So far I am still working on cleaning up the garden a warming the soil in a few of the beds, but I have been able to plant a few things. I have planted round one of peas and Fava beans, a few more strawberries that were gifted to me, lettuce,  beets, spinach and kohlrabi that will all be sewn a few more times in the first few weeks of april. This garden is more alive at this point than it has ever been in march. My herbs and perrenials  are coming back to life but I also have parsley, swiss chard, lettuce, spinach and an onion that all some how made it through some very cold weather.20150307_122856
