Organic Vegetable Garden (OVG), March 15th:
While many people are focused on the wearin’ o’ the green this week, we have been working on the planting of the greens—lettuce, spinach, arugla, and others. Now is the time to sow seeds for these greens so that you can harvest the delicious leaves before the weather gets too hot and the plants bolt. Lettuce and other greens come in a wide variety of beautiful colors. While we plant ours in beds, they can make a lovely addition interspersed in your garden. However, we have found that some of the less showy varieties, like Black Seeded Simpson, are better producers.
