Although we have about 1 more month until it’s officially spring, it’s time to start getting serious about what you want to plant in your own veggie garden. Look what’s already going on out at Luscher Farm. Great slide show from Oregon Tilth and also a chance to sign up for the COG class (Comprehensive Organic Gardening) that starts in less than 2 weeks! I recommend it.
Please hit the link “Garden Tour” right under Week of 2/7/2011 to go to the slideshow as the picasaweb link at the end isn’t working correctly!
Week of 2/7/2011
Vole Clues, Fava Blues…
This time of year, the cold shoulder of the spring season, we are seeding our earliest crops, finalizing the garden plan, and remembering lessons from years’ past. The garden is beginning to swell with energy as buds bulge, cover crops regain strength, new compost steams, birds forage for lingering seeds, and the earliest weeds establish a tenuous foothold on bed perimeters and pathways. As our propagation trays begin to fill with life, so do our energy reserves, calibrating to the unstoppable surge of Spring’s wealth, return, and unpredictability. Enjoy the slide show. Please post questions!
In Good Tilth,
The Garden Staff
