Let the Gardening Begin - Spring 2010

The weather is beautiful. The ground is dry. The garden is ready. We are eager.

But... is it too soon? After all it is only April 24 and this is Winnipeg. We live in Plant Hardiness Zone 2b. Our average first frost free day is May 21. That's almost a month away.

I don't think I can wait. I've already drawn up a plan, planted some garlic, pulled a few weeds and put up our teepee/bean structure. The preliminaries are done.

Perhaps, tomorrow I will plant a few seeds. What could possibly go wrong if I sowed some peas, carrots, lettuce, spinach, beets, swiss chard? (Don't answer that, I don't really want to know!)
