The side bed – 6 weeks old

April 25, 2013 / by lifeonbonita

I planted seeds outside in early March.  My full garden wasn’t ready and was covered in snow, but my side bed was open, so we thought we’d try to grow some early plants there.  I was unsure if they would live, Utah get’s lots of snow in march and april.    Well, it’s been nearly two months and they are still alive!  They have endured quite a few snowstorms, a windstorm, and some rollercoaster spring weather.   I honestly did not know they would make it.  The beets are struggling and some of the onions but the lettuce, peas, carrots and radish are doing really well.  I think though, I’ll wait until later to plant next year.   It was a bit early to start.
