Spring planting, part 1
I've been avidly reading the Auld Farmer's Almanack ( available on-line, pls observe modern spelling rules), trying 2 figure out what's starting from seeds, and what kind of sets I have to buy over ye next couple of days.
Getting lined up with the moon would be impossibly complex were it not 4 ye Almanack's handy, dandy planting by the moon chart.
Tomorow carrot seeds get startd in the house, & I'll have until 3/5 2 get the seedlings planted outside. Also leek sets, which'll go outside immediately.
Everything else goes in Wednesday: cukes, lettuce, spinach, tomatoes.
Potatoes & onions R already growing.
Parsley waits 'til Friday.
Celery stalks @ midnite.
