Our main summer garden is in an area that is really wet all winter. So we can't plant over wintered crops there. We have to wait each spring until the soil dries out enough for planting. Well, today we got out there and prepared a bunch of beds and planted sunflowers, potatoes, onion sets, Red Fyfe wheat and some black garbanzo beans that we are trying for the first time. Starting Sunday we will get a bunch of flower seedlings that are sitting in cold frames waiting for the ground to be ready in the ground. I have flats of stocks, asters, annual sweet william, statice and godetia ready to go.
