Starting Early

Thinking about early planting in your garden plot? From now in early February through March, you can plant asparagus, beets, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, collards, kale, lettuce, mustard, green and dry bulb onions, garden or English peas, Irish potatoes, radish, spinach or turnips, to name a few. With all the garden goodness in this list, what are you waiting for? Planting early can help your plants get a head start on garden pests. Grab your garden tools, get some seedlings and get them planted in your garden plot.
