Spring Gardening in the City

In our city garden plots, we are waiting patiently for our seeds and seedlings to get strong and grow. Seems like this spring was a long cold and rainy one. Now it is suddenly blazing hot. We are crossing our fingers, hoping these little guys can take it. I think we had more in the ground by this time last year that was already growing well.

This year we are looking forward to potatoes, onions, peppers, spinach, chard, tomatoes, beets, peas, lettuce, watermelon, cucumbers, radishes, and Chinese cabbage... so far. We are already strategically plotting how to fight our pests the cucumber beetle, squash borer, and harlequin bugs. I'll have to do a pest post this year. We are ready!
