It is almost a month since my last garden picture. Snow melt is progressing slowly and the weather continues very cold.

3/16/2015 Finally I managed to open the gate yesterday.

3/16/2015 Yesterday I managed to open the garden gate which has been frozen in the mud since mid-January.

With the gate back in operation, I can get in to prune the raspberries. I want to plant snow peas in 2 weeks, but the area is still deep in snow.

This weekend was spent laying out my gardens on paper.  The plans are not finished. I recently got some free seed at a seed swap with dates of 2011 & 2012 and realized they should be germination tested before being put on my garden map.

There is no rush to finish the map with the garden is still under a thick blanket of snow.

Here is what I plan to plant in 2015. It looks like a lot of stuff but for vegetables such as brassicas, peppers and tomatoes I grow only 2-4 plants of any variety. I like to try new varieties but don’t put too much space into anything new.
