Feels like Spring, well, it kind of feels like Spring! We have had a big warm up here in Wisconsin and I can not wait to get into the garden.  I made a trip out there today to see how it is looking for early seed planting.  The ground is solidly frozen beneath the cover leaves and left over straw that I cover the soil with in the winter.  Tomorrow I’ll put plastic over the two beds that the early peas and spinach will go into.  Hopefully by next week I will be able to get an early start.  If you are wondering why there is a number 3 painted on the side of the box, it is for plant rotation.  It is very important to start a crop rotation schedule to help maintain the balance of nutrients, organic matter, and microorganisms necessary for healthy soil.
