Planted a super early row of cucumbers. There may yet be a frost, but there’s a chance they also get an early start. Will plant succession rows over the next weeks. Varieties: Blanc de Holland, Bushy, Spacesaver

A few observations from an indecisive April. Red amaranth popping up, that was planted in spring 2023! Did realize it took so long to germinate, but that goes to show you the power of building up a seedbank. Especially for lazy gardeners such as myself.

Aside from the amaranth, the orpines were one of the first greens, pushing up through the snow. They’re naturalized around the property, likely planted by the previous owners. Their flowers are a pollinator favourite, they can handle full sun or full shade, have no issue with rich or poor soil, and are apparently edible - though on first taste they were unimpressive. It pays to observe and research what’s growing around you naturally.
