The Almanac doesn't seem to call for any late freezes this Spring - but it's sometimes vague in its forecast and hard to interpret on purpose. So outdoor planting will go on, with carrots, onions, lettuces, and even some early snow peas by this coming weekend. Once again we are starting the peas indoors wrapped up in a damp paper towel on top of the refrigerator until they germinate, inoculating them with nitrogen-fixing bacteria, then carefully setting sprouted seeds in prepared soil outside. We've moved the pea fence to their new growing location, next to the spinach.

We've also started parsley seed indoors on the heating mat and will be planting other herbs soon, along with tomatoes and other warm-weather crops in a couple weeks.
