More March Garden Tips

More March Garden Tips from mom:

March weather can be a mixed bag.   Work out side on sunny days but don't rush the season.  If you spaded the garden last fall and left it rough, rake out a small area to plant onion sets for green onions and a row or two of radishes.   These will provide some fresh produce in just a few weeks.  A few herbs and vegetables can be sown directly intp the garden as soon as the soil can be worked.  Do not destroy the soil by working it when it is too wet.   Plant rhubarb and asparagus.   Plant or sow plants or seeds of spinanch, chives, dill, mint, oregano, and thyme.   Plant peas.  Plant hardy perennial plants.

 Gardening has been such a big part of the family tradition that I thought I'd better get as much information written down from mom and dad as possible to pass on.
