Tuesday Garden Party for February 24th

The weather continues to be very spring like, here at our house. I planted a few seeds in the garden, a couple weeks ago and we have seedlings already. It looks like the lettuce and radishes have sprouted. I also saw a couple of peas trying to poke up through the soil.

Growing Sugar Snap Peas, Here's an info graphic with all the information you need to grow sugar snap peas.

This past week, I share some tips about growing sugar snap peas. I like to sprout the pea seeds and then plant them in the garden. I seem to have better luck with the indoor sprouting than direct planting in the garden.

I already have a couple pea seedlings making their way up through the soil. I lost one to the birds and I’m hoping that we don’t lose any more since I’m out of seeds.

Beautiful Iowa Sunset thanks Michelle

It seems like much of the country is buried under snow and bad weather. I’ve been hearing about record cold temperatures in Florida and record snow falls on the East Coast. We don’t have much snow here – though we do have a bit left over from the blizzard we had on Super Bowl Sunday. Instead, it’s just brutally cold in my area. We’ve had windchill advisories for many days complete with school delays and travel advisories. I am just so over winter and the cold. The only good thing I can say about the cold weather: it makes the most gorgeous sunsets ever!

I still haven’t done hardly anything related to gardening as I won’t be starting seeds for a few weeks yet. One mistake I made last year was to start my seeds too early, so as excited as I am to get going, I am holding off this year. I’ve found Skippy’s Planting Calendar to be very helpful for determining when to start my seeds. All you have to do is plug in your average last frost date (May 15 for my zone – 5b) and it generates a whole personalized list. Brassicas will be started first, but not until 3/13 (if I decide to try my luck at starting them again) .

I do plan to pull out my seed starting supplies pretty soon and make sure I have everything for the awesome seed starting shelf my husband built for me last year. I’ll need to clean it off as it’s currently housing my huge buckets of dry pantry goods!
