February = Spring, Part I

January has been a down time for us and February sees us back at the drawing board, checking out garden catalogs and plant sale dates, and sprucing up tools for a new season.

There may be frost on the chard leaves but inside are little pea plants sprouting in egg shells. This year I will try to do a 2-week pea planting succession so I can have peas all spring and summer, enough to share all up and down the block.
