final march garden report
posted by soe 12:56 am

Plot: March 31

I really thought last week’s garden update would be my final one for the month, but the difference a single week makes is so singular, I had to show you!

My peas:

My spring onions are carrying on:

My daffodils, which contrary to my previous report are mini daffs and which have since grown to a normal height:

My crocus is a gorgeous stripey one:

My violets are still being a little shy, but I expect they’ll have found their confidence by next weekend. I transplanted a bunch more from the front of the garden to the back.

Today, I planted a bunch of seeds — chard and arugula and lettuce and the like. I didn’t have any spinach seeds to plant with me and I need to go through my master garden bag to see if they’ve gotten separated from their seasonal brethren or if I need to acquire a new packet.

Next week, I need to rake out the strawberry patch and dig out the back of the garden, where I usually plant herbs and a pepper or two. I moved our mint over, because we’re going to lay piping around the garden to help transport water and the spigot is in my plot. Our garden manager thinks I’ll be able to reclaim that territory once the piping is down, but I figured it was better to be safe than sorry.
