Planting a Spring Vegetable Garden

The temperature is getting warmer and the days are getting longer, which means it's time to plant our vegetable garden! Cliff made some awesome raised beds in our backyard last fall, but we just missed the planting window, so we're excited to get some seeds going this spring!

The Master Gardener Program of Santa Clara County has a great vegetable planting chart that shows you what you can plant month by month. Here are the vegetables we're thinking about starting this month (March):

Arugula
Beets
Carrots
Cilantro
Fennel
Kale
Lettuce
Peas
Radishes
Spinach

We recently were up at Half Moon Bay Nursery and picked up seeds from Baker Heirloom Seeds and Renee's Garden. They had a really great collection! I have also seen Renee's Garden seeds at Whole Foods if you're looking to pick some up in town.
