I started my seedlings about a month early this year. Normally I’d just now be starting tomatoes, peppers and eggplant. This year I got them going the second week of February. The soil I’m using is also a bit richer in nitrogen content thanks to some aged chicken manure. In past years my plants, while healthy, never looked quite as good as commercial plants. I’m determined to make sure this years plants get off to a better start.
Another change in this years garden is that it will be much smaller with many of my plants going into two hugelculture beds near the cabin. It’s an experiment!
