There are still some young lettuce, choi and parsley surviving under the plastic outside, but today we ate the last of the mature veggies (kale) harvested last week from the 2015 garden.
I have been studying Eliot Coleman's books to find clues as to what and when I should begin planting for the spring garden. As I mentioned previously, I want to keep the entire garden in production this year with active succession planting. Based on what I have read so far, I should be planting short rows (or squares) of several vegetables each week or two once the temperatures rise. I know for certain that we will want a lot of parsley for tabouli and other purposes. We should also have a steady supply of carrots and beets along with the lettuce, kale and choi that we seem to have mastered.
My immediate goal apart from ordering and starting seeds is to run a drip irrigation system to save time on watering this year.
