You can plant peas, beets, spinach, broccoli, cabbage, boc choi, tatsoi, onions, leeks, cold tolerant lettuces and other greens planted as long as the soil is dry enough.

Why wait when there are plenty of things you can grow now?

Adding turnip, radish, rutabaga and parsnips to the list above.

There sure was a frost on Tuesday night. Glad I brought my potted annuals in. Last night I left my hanging pot with a gorgeous fuschia and baccopa in it and just hopped for the best. I will probably make up my window boxes this weekend and another haning pot. Things are so expensive now that I hate to lose them at the beginning of the season. I only put in a couple tomato plants and perhaps one cuke. Yard isn't that big and I really do enjoy my flowers all summer. There are so many farmers mkts around now with wonderful choices for veggies. If you haven't visited the Bangor one across from the "Schoolhouse" from 11 - 2 on Sunday morning, they have a great selection.
