cold weather planting

It's the end of March, which means it is time to plant the first of the crops.  Accordingly, in the ground (or pots), I have recently planted carrot seeds, beet seeds, and mesculan salad mix.  These plants can withstand the chilly weather, and actually thrive when planted way before the hot and muggy summer days.

I also planted two sweet pea plants and an edamame plant.  Not because I planned it that way, mind you, but because I have started a bunch of seeds indoors, and these little ones ended up shooting out of the dirt like they were on a mission.  Therefore, although it is a bit early for them to meet the outside climate, out they have gone.  I will cross my fingers that these little ones make it.
