It's about 12 weeks from last frost date is probably one of my most favorite times of the year; that means seed starting! The days getting longer, and we catch a few warm ones here and there. That usually gets my farming juices flowing and I get the "itch" to have seeds meet soil.
This far out from last frost is time for cold season veggies that I'll move out to the cold frame next month. Cold-tolerant veggies include cabbages, broccoli, cauliflower, spinach, cilantro, pansies, and more. I also start things that take a while to germinate and grow: hot peppers, eggplant, and some flowers.
Do you start your own seeds? I'll be hosting a seed exchange at Wolfe Springs Farm on March 7 at 1:00. You can find more event info on the Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/events/3321856251219620/
Remember, you have until the middle of this month to get your farmshare application and deposit returned to guarantee your spot in our 2020 farmshare program. See February's blog post for more information on the farmshare.
