We started some things indoors in the middle of April, although I think we were a little late.
The sunflowers were the first thing to graduate to the ground–we really had no choice!
In mid-May we started digging. The compromise we reached was that we would put the tomatoes and peppers in the front yard, but wanting to limit the amount of visible lawn we were ripping up, we would put the rest of the garden in the back yard.
This area only gets partial sun, and had quite a few weeds and some periwinkle in it.
Now at week 3, you can start to see which plants really need more sun than they’re getting back here. Beans and radishes are doing fine, but the carrots, chard, lettuce, and spinach are barely making it.
Winners: those sunflowers, and the bell pepper plants
