Happy Spring Equinox! We were busy packing plant orders for our plant fundraiser so we definitely noticed the surge in plant growth and activity. The length of day and night is approximately equal on this day and our gardens are feeling the balance.
We just passed the first quarter and the moon is now in waxing gibbous going into a full moon. Now is also a time to seed-in plants that fruit and seed like beans, corn, cucumbers, melons, and squash. It’s also time for transplants of strawberries, eggplants, tomatillos, tomatoes and peppers. It is still a good time to plant nut and fruit trees including citrus, and berry bushes and grape vines. It’s always best to try to transplant and seed-in with the coming rains. Rain is in the forecast this week!
We hope you were able to pick up some of these transplants from our annual online fundraiser. We had an exciting time growing them this year indoors through the historic winter storm. Please tag us as your plants grow this year! Tell us what you like about the varieties our members grew.
