Well, kinda sorta, it is planting time.

Pea planting 3/31/2015

Snow pea planting 3/31/2015

I like to sow the snow peas by April 1. Rain was predicted for that day and most of the following week so I made a point of planting 3/31. There was snow remaining in the path but the bed was clear and not frozen. It was a bit wet, too wet for a tiller, but OK for working with a fork and rake.

I also planted radishes and spinach. ¬†Tomorrow I plan to plant snap peas in the bed to the left, behind me. It’s been warm enough this week to melt all the snow in the garden and it gets enough sun to be workable.

In contrast, my well mulched bed of shade perennials is still frozen rock solid, although 5′ away a crocus is blooming near a wall.
