March is a pretty exciting time for New England farmers: The seed order arrives, we start digging around for seedling trays and heat lamps. Sprouting seeds kick of the re-greening of the dead brown ground being revealed by the quickly retreating snow banks. Karen has broccoli and kale started already, pushing up first leaves. Last week she planted 4 kinds of tomatoes and 3 kinds of peppers. This week, some of the early flowers and herbs will find their spot out on the seedling starting porch.
Get ready for some great produce this year!
