Garden: First Seeds of Spring -- Preview of Things to Come

Throughout the next few months I'll be documenting my vegetable gardening adventures with friends upstate. They've signed up for a plot at Stony Kill Farm, an organic farm north of Beacon, and I'll be heavily involved this year, from start to finish. Tune in for the hits and misses...even though I grew up in the middle of farm country Pennsyltucky, I don't really know what I'm doing!

Happily, we kicked off the season yesterday, starting the first few seeds on my friends' back deck: hot peppers, bell peppers, Genovese zucchini, and a selection of herbs. We'll be adding lots of tomatoes, more hot peppers, cabbage, and a few other things in the weeks to come!

If you have access to compost, veggies love it. Nature's way of adding nutrients to the soil. If not ... add a banana peel (after eating the banana of course) to each hole you dig. It has a wealth of easily broken-down nutrients for plants.
