Last week’s snow has melted away and it’s time to get back to gardening outside. The good news is that there is a lot of moisture in this last snowfall, something we really needed. So when the ground clears and dries up in the garden, which vegetables can we plant from late March into April? We can plant many cool weather vegetable seeds directly in the ground. Beets, broccoli, cabbage, kale, lettuce, peas, spinach, turnips like the cooler spring temperatures and can be planted from seed now. Don't harvest rhubarb or asparagus during their first season. This will allow the plant to establish. Rhubarb and asparagus can produce for 10 years or more, so pick a spot in the garden where they won't be disturbed for many seasons. add to your vegetable garden.
