It’s really feeling like spring and I’m finally getting the gardens and pots cleaned out and ready to get planted.

Well, my lawn guy is doing all the work because I have a pulled muscle and can’t do the yanking and lifting.

Anyway, the gardens will get a boost of mushroom compost and they will be ready to plant.

By the way, I use bagged mushroom compost available at any of our local hardware stores.

It is easier to put in the garden as opposed to getting a truckload and having to shovel it in a wheelbarrow then to the garden.

So we went to Oklahoma City last week and I got to go to TLC Greenhouse and Nursery.

I went directly to the herb and vegetable area and bought curly parsley, flat leaf parsley, dill and cilantro.

Yes, I will have dill and cilantro popping up soon but I’m impatient!

They also had really nice broccoli plants and I got red, yellow, and white onion plants as well as Yukon Gold potato seeds.

They had lots of other things that can be planted right now and I did buy a “salad bowl” that is a mix of lettuces ready to go right in the garden or in a pot.

I will let it get established for a week or so before I start harvesting.

You can start some leafy lettuce and spinach by seed and they will produce pretty quick.

You can also seed radishes, turnips, and beets now so there is a lot to get our spring vegetable garden started.
