Lacey's Garden

One of the things that should be done now is ordering your seeds for the vegetables that you want to sow before the Last Spring Frost.  There a many plants available at Parks Brothers that you can purchase to plant early, but there are many that are best sown directly into the garden or if you want specialty plants like heirlooms.  Broccoli, Brussel Sprouts, cabbage, swiss chard, collards, kale, kohlrabi, peas, spinach, turnips, beets, cauliflower and lettuce are just a few that like to be planted early.  I have ordered many of my seeds from an heirloom specialty catalog online called  Most of the ones I ordered need to be planted here at the earliest in mid February to the latest the first week of April.  It is all determined by the date of the Last Spring Frost.  Here in Claremore, that date tends to waver from April 1 to April 15 or so.  There are many online sources to get you started on the planning stages of your new spring vegetable garden.  And it is lots of fun to do on yucky, icy winter day.
