    I have eggplant and peppers started in my kitchen, but need to get going on raised beds if I want to get everything in the ground in time! I'm also planting lettuce, peas and zucchini. All the seeds are from Baker Creek. They sell only heirloom seeds and there was a nice story about them in Hobby Farms Magazine, so I thought I'd give their seeds a try. BTW, I'm a gardening newbie, so wish me luck!!! [​IMG]

    last night I did a lot of different types of lettuce and Aunt Ruby's Green Tomatoes, giant pansy's, marigold's, and basil. Tomorrow night its more red tomatoes, lemon basil, chives & purple mustard. Sometime after the snow melts, its rhubarb!

    great thread! I just planted beans today b/c they are overgrowing inside (I started everything indoors this year). I am nervous 'cause i'm not sure i'm past the "the last frost." glad to know others are planting too...i like seeing where you're all from and trying to figure out if I'm too far north to be planting this early. I think I'll put the first round of radishes out tomorrow.

    In the ground and growing well - for the chickies -spinach, kale, mustard greens and dandilion greens. Transpanted outside this week - tomatoes and squash. Just sown this week - green beans, peas, assorted Japanese greens, and carrots. Also put in an asparagus bed and the blueberry, raspberry and strawberries are looking good. Make sure you check out TheEasyGarden - lots of BYC people there.
