Garden Plans 3-7-11

Mar 07, 2011

Here are my garden plans for the week of 3-7-11 with a bit of a recap of last weeks projects. Spring is on the way so here's a little inspiration from far Northern California zone 8-9 so it gets pretty cold here. You will have to adapt my schedule to your own climate. This is a new idea so this week I am starting by letting you know what I have been up to so far.

Pruning apple trees I have been doing lots of fruit tree pruning and Starting tomatoes and peppers and brassicas in the green house. Planting tomatoes in the green house in early March will give us some early tomatoes before the 4th of July if all goes well. Last year we had a killer frost and lost our first planting of tomatoes and we had a really cold spring and we still got tomatoes by the middle of July. 

Planting greens We should be getting peppers by late July and lettuce and spinach and brassicas (cabbage family) by May.

If you want more inspiration and ideas for garden planting and projects you can check out my family-gardens calendar page. You will see lots of what I have been up too as well as what other folks are doing in their gardens. We would love to know what you are up too so don't hesitate to post your plans and accomplishments yourself. Pictures are not necessary but make a great addition. Happy planting Farmer Dave So get a good start on your gardens today.
