  • Now is a great time to get your peas in the ground in many areas of the country.

  • Please visit our new pages on "When to Plant Peas" for lots of great information about this timely topic.

  • We also have a great new article on "Growing Snow Peas", in case you are toying with that idea!

  • Is it too Early to Plant Lettuce?

    My uncle Jack always gets his lettuce seeds planted about this time of the year.

    He made a little frame for his raised lettuce bed using plastic tubing.

    He covers the frame with clear plastic, and holds it in place with staples.

    The plastic traps the solar heat, and helps warm the soil.

    The lettuce seeds will germinate and start to grow.

    The plastic also protects the lettuce plants from hard frosts.

    So you might give planting some early lettuce seeds a try!

    Planting Onions

    Onions are another early crop that can be planted in your vegetable garden.

    Egyptian Onions are an especially interesting variety of onion to grow.

    And they are perennial--which means you only have to plant them once! Check out our article on growing Egyptian Onions.

    Do You Have a Great Seed Catalog?

    Order a free seed catalog from Territorial Seed Company today if you haven't already done so.

    It is a great tool for planning your vegetable garden.

    The only drawback to planting a garden is that you have to choose.

    You can't plant everything, no matter how tempting the beautiful pictures and yummy descriptions.

    It's one of life's little lessons.
