I'm itching to get my garden started. Is it too soon to plant seeds? I tried beans that were sprouted for a few weeks but we did not harden them off and they died over night. (Stupid, I know)

so, what's your style of planting??

(oh, we have raised beds)

We have plenty of greenhouse space now since we were told we couldn't be growing any more medicinal herbs in it so tomatoes are started there as well as broccoli and other stuff, can't recall. Potatoes from Wrangell are in, peas are in, flowers are in. More later as my bread dough has risen.

My guy picked up a big load of compost and lumber in Fairbanks last weekend, and I've spent most evenings this week shoveling and mixing compost, river sand, peat moss, and vermiculite in the raised beds he built me. I'll be planting out this weekend, once I get the pvc hoops up for the row covers. Planting brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, celery, carrots, leeks, onions, potatoes, cabbage, peas, lettuce, and some greens out there. Then we're building a greenhouse to grow tomatoes, peppers, beans, herbs, and whatever else I feel like. Got a small wood stove donated by a friend to put in it. This is my first year gardening up here, so I know it will be a challenge, but I can't wait to really get started!
