May Gardening Part 1

Outside of some very strong winds damaging a few plants I have been killing it on the gardening front.

I was a little scared about getting things in pots early because of Ohio’s notorious late frost, but I have to say I’m very pleased thus far.

Earlier this week I harvested some spring onions and spinach. My father in law cooked it same day and loved it. I was beaming because if you all remember last year I failed at spinach.

My secret this year was to plant the seeds early. I planted them in early March. I watched the snow fall on the plants and stared at the sad dirt pile for weeks. I thought there was no way this was going to grow. I was wrong.

I have been able to harvest six large gallon zip lock bags full of spinach. Last year I didn’t get not one leaf. I’m hoping this will be one of my best seasons yet.

Stay tuned for more updates

Planted thus far- cabbage, collards, spinach, peas, onions, garlic, carrots, celery, and potatoes.

Sorry no pictures of the spinach. I forgot to take pictures before I cut it.

Red Kalibas. Not container friendly I’ve learned
