Early Spring planting...DONE!

My goal for my early garden planting is usually around St. Patrick's Day. This year our only chance to plant was a little earlier than usual. We had a sbeautiful sunny day and took advantage of it! Eli helped Brandon till the soil...then Brandon and I snuck out to plant the garden while both kids were napping. We planted two different types of red potatoes (around 40 plants), one early and one mid harvest. We also planted twelve broccoli plants, a variety that gives one large head and then tons of side shoots the rest of the summer. Lastly, we planted a row of spinach and a row of a mixed lettuce seeds. Now, I just have to keep watering daily until I see sprouts.
