This Will Go Down in Your Permanent Record, Part I

It’s Just a Habit: part one in a series of notes for POD 2011

Some Sign to Pursue a Promise…
This year’s targeted plants on deck date (April 20) proved to be a little early. Each year promises are made that this will be the year that POD’s minder demonstrates restraint and won’t submit tender seedlings to the elements before those elements are ready for them.

Next year’s targeted drop date for the important stuff is May 7-21.  Which, conveniently, will fall on what one hopes will be a lovely spring weekend.

So, what does that mean in terms of a POD 2011 seed-starting timeline?
(First, find some real, honest-to-goodness seed-starting mix.)
February 12: romanesco (on deck March 19)
March 26: tomatoes, peppers, and herbs (on deck May 7)
April 16: cucumbers and melons (on deck May 14-21)

March 12: kale, turnips
March 19: lettuce, radishes, carrots
April 2: chard
May 7: beans
