Spring came back to Garden on Sherlock Street today. We had some winter late last week with snow even. May get some rain or snow later this week too. March is fickle.
I put some seeds in the ground today. Lettuce, radishes, peas and kohlrabi. I like to set my cages up to help decide where to plant everything. I may need to move them a bit when I put in tomato plants and such. I don't till my garden. I try to keep straw on it some through winter buy laying the cages down to hold the straw when it is windy. This past winter, my cage placement worked very well. I just move the straw and work what I need by hand before putting in seeds or plants. The cold frames probably get the most digging as that is where I put the lettuce and other spring crops with small seeds. What you're seeing in the photo are the cages in place, the closest cold frame planted and the green sprouts of garlic and winter onions.
