march is marching in warmer temps

Post  mschaef on 3/8/2015, 11:27 pm

With the weather getting warmer and lows no longer below freezing my lettuce has sprouted and spinach is big enough to start munching on. Hoping to see the peas popping up any day now. We got our onion and carrots seeds planted today. My boys helped. My little one said the funniest thing "goodnight carrots grow big and fast so I can eat you." He is four and is excited for the seeds to grow. How's everybody else gardens going? Anyone have peas yet?

I could and should have started already because we have had a very early spring. I am in the planning stage and will be starting to plant within the next day or so.

Great job of what you have going! Sounds like your boys will be a big help and they will learn so much!

Honest I'd believe you that it's getting warmer , save for me standing in my garage on & off for three hours this afternoon freezing by butt off & also with a dew drop on my nose .

No chance of getting out in the garden either as it's forecast to to hover around 3 to 4 degrees oC for a day or so and rain , rain and rain and rain again.

Still I did manage to convert 9 x 3 mtr lengths of brand new 1 & 1/4"  internal diameter ABS plastic sink waste pipes into 75 mm lengths for the final batch of my tube pots ... got 288 in the end for less than 12 pence each & they will last me and my family out .
 
Yesterday when it was a lot warmer & dryer I made up half a cubic metre of new MM to fill the pots prior to sowing a single  seed in the centre of each pot .

 Unfortunately I need to clean out the glasshouse inside & out plus disinfect it before I start the sowing .

Our carrots finally sprouted I'm so excited. Very Happy  We also have kale, lettuce, peas, and spinach growing. With all the warm weather I'm hoping that the peas have time to produce and not just be green.

That's my worry also.  I didn't plant my peas until 3/9.  I think that is a couple weeks after you planted yours.  I am experimenting with 7 different varieties.  Alaska variety says 58 days to maturity so I should get some peas from that variety.  Also planted Wando which is supposed to be the most heat resistant but Days to Maturity is 68 days.  We shall see.
