e.g. My date: (Feb 19th) 10 weeks before average date of last frost.
Recommended activities include:
- Sow seeds in doors for later transplants: broccoli, kohlrabi, and cabbage
- Store leftover seeds in cool, dry place
- Tune up power equipment
One of the pre-gardening season recommendations in the book is to build a cold frame. A variety of cold frame plans are available for free on the web. I've saved a large tempered glass shower door from our old home that could be ideal for this purpose. It has literally been lying around for 12 years, so I would love to finally reuse it for such a worthwhile purpose. I also have some lumber that I've stored, left over from various projects, that could be utilized for a cold frame.
This afternoon I will be meeting with volunteers from 4-H to talk about developing a vegetable garden at our church. Spring will come!
