Eldersburg Garden Update

Following an Eldersburg gardener.

Good news: everything that I planted is breaking through the ground. It felt good seeing the plants reaching toward the sun. I usually plant potatoes on March 17, but the weatherman said there was a chance of rain today and again on Saturday.

So, I planted the potatoes today along with broccoli, Brussels sprouts and Romaine lettuce. Now I hope it does rain. We like red poatoes and I brought them again at Tractor Supply. This year they are red norland. I plant at least one thing that I haven't planted before every year. Last year it was Swiss chard and this year it's Romaine lettuce.

It is used in Caesar salad, which Shirley and Becca like a lot. Now if we can eat the veggies before the deer do. It's a race every year.

is it kind of early to plant?

I usually plant around March 17. I wouldn't plant anything like tomatoes or peppers, but cold weather crops like peas, broccoli, lettuce and onions are okay to put in the ground. Thank you for viewing Eldersburg.Patch.
