Even though it is still slightly chilly outside and a bit too early for the huge sowing feast, there is still work to do in the garden. With your butt risen up to the sun, you can make lines with spinach, radishes and other early veggies that are more resistant to the cold than others. Then you will have something homegrown to eat in a month already. Potatoes can also be laid in the beds, if you have made sure to have them indoors for a couple of weeks so that they could sprout.
And finally, the rhubarbs from last year could be neatly packed with some compost. More about this in my next post. Speaking of compost. We have had some compost in our beds throughout the winter. It was put there last fall to make the soil more porous. The compost is afterwards carefully turned into the soil as we readied it for the spring. After all, one has to remember that it is the soil that needs fertilizing and not the plants themselves. If you fertilize the plants you can easily give them too much, but working it into the soil, it will give them a more natural access to it.
Besides, despite the weather being slightly chilly, the spring is easily felt. Especially if you can find a spot in shelter from the wind. Then you can work without a layer of a thick sweater.
