I guess most of those listed in my post to you I can freeze them after blanching. Darn cold virus has been bothering me. Doing liquids, Naturopath medicine.I guess the garden nursery can let me know what can start in Jiffy greenhouse. I lost out last year. Planted too late after trip to coast and nothing really did anything but peas.

Think it was too chilly on my porch as some of my tomato seeds didn't germinate last moon cycle. I brought them in so some are now the old ones didn't.Others took longer like the celery.

Boy this tablet misses letters and I see I transposed some letters too. grrrrrrrrrrrrr

Most of what you have need to be planted in ground.Transplanting usually puts the plant into shock or slows it down. Too early for the summer crops except tomaotes. Basil w/the disease going round is better to grow indoors. If you really want you can star you peas indoors. Do you have Inoculant for the peas? Soak them over night dip thme in tthe inoculant then plant. If you don't have any more sonw you can plant them in ground as soon as soil can be worked. I did see brussel sprout starts in tthe store. Think you can presart broccoli. The next new moon is he 7th you can sart them 2 days before that and they will come right up.

What veggie seeds can I plant pre before in the ground? I have one of those Jiffy Greenhouses for in house. Has 72 peat discs. Once I know I will start. I have brocolli, corn, peas variety, pole beans, zucch's, cukes, K-rabbi, pumpkins, beets, carrots and brussel sprouts. If I can get some of these started early and ready to plant in ground when ready. I might already have garlic and Egyptian onion already waiting to come up. I got rows in last years garden ready. And newer garden still to do rows and oldest, turn soil and make rows. What veggies that don't come up in greenhouse will have to get from garden nursery. Hope you and maybe other recent contacts like William and others I knew. Might get my cubic freezer up and running again.

I spaced that one I tthought we were at new moon we are at full moon. Duh! Read my calendar wrong with my pencil moons for quick look. It is transplanting time and root crop planting.

So nice to hear back from you Vicky. Looks like you might be getting some hardier veggies into your gardens. Still waiting here, winter still fussing, it may not be on ground right now but expected once next week. I have my Jiffy seed planting tray, 72 peat pods to fill. I have broccoli seeds and want to get brussel sprouts started. Can you give me more veggie seed suggestions to start inside. I don't need peppers, tomatoes, not planting potatoes. What about easy flowers? I have pole and bush beans, corn, pumpkins, cukes, zucchini, carrots, beets, maybe Egyptian onion and garlic. Some I will glean to church veggie garden for their food pantry, Wednesday's.

Wow this moon cycle snuck up fas Sun is 2 days before the new moon. I'm still plugging away trying to get the beds built. We put in a frost free hose bib on the back of he house yeserday. I got some asparagus crowns in. Need to get the 2 purple ones in but need a bed built and filled for them, prrobably get more purple crowns. They are female plants the green are only males only 40 cents a crown at Farmer's Exchange.

Darn new laptop. I hope I get used to it. Miss my old one. Well once the ground unfrozen will get veggie rows ready to plant end of  April into May. I did pick up a 2016 Farmer's Almanac. Bunny dug into a mound of soil I had put in oldest veggie garden. I am still collecting used coffee grounds for lawns and gardens.
