Here on the North Carolina/South Carolina line, spring planting is starting with cool season vegetables. Top of the list for me is sugar snap peas, and spinach. Yes, we get to start early, but the price is that everything burns up when it gets summer hot in May.
So, what are other people planting across the land in community gardens right now?
Further north, in the lower 48, Canada, and Alaska, are people starting seedlings indoors?
I've got a flat of tomatoes, warm season flowers, eggplants and peppers growing to set out next month.
Here, the weather has been pretty mild all winter, mild but dreary. I hear on the news other regions have been hit with much harsher conditions.
Like all politics, all gardening is local, I suppose. Even if we as North American community gardeners find ourselves facing similar human and organizing challenges, whether we're in Barrow or Boca Raton, Saguenay or San Diego.
So, where are you and your community garden in the planting process?
PS: We have an old tiller, donated by a former gardener. So another thing that happens now is everybody wants their plot tilled - NOW! COVID, schmovid, I'm putting on my mask and getting out in the garden!
