March through mid-May

Pull weeds, rake and smooth out the top of the soil in my garden boxes.What I’m Doing Outside:

  • Pull weeds, rake and smooth out the top of the soil in my garden boxes.
  • Mark the garden box grids and install trellises.
  • Start planting cool season plants like spinach, lettuce, chard by planting seeds directly in the garden.
  • Early potatoes and peas can be planted but I don’t plant these until the soil temperature gets to 45°F.
  • Mulch in late April so the soil has a chance to warm up but this is based on the weather.
  • Harvest and enjoy spring vegetables.

What I’m Doing Inside:

  • Prepare indoor growing area and start summer crop seedlings.
  • Print out the garden plans and determine dates for planting on my calendar.
  • Inventory the quantities of preserved food to update our growing plan based on how much we’ve consumed over the winter.
  • Preserve and freeze your spring harvest.
