It's the proper time here in KC for the early stuff...plus it was 80+ degrees this past weekend and I needed to get out and do something. I had to fight the urge to overplant...leaving some squares open for successive plantings of lettuce, radish, etc. and future summer crops (beans, peppers, flowers, herbs).

I think that I can get a good harvest of peas in before the tomatoes need to climb the same trellis...we'll just have to see how it goes.

I was impressed with Mel's Mix and it's ability to hold moisture...I watered the soil lightly and it did well through 80 degrees and 20 mph winds all day long.
