Vegetable Seed Planting Outside Now

Red Russian Kale
Today I planted a row of Red Russian Kale seeds in the ground.

Reminder: It's time to get all your cabbage and cool family seeds and plants started outside. That includes broccoli, cabbage, carrot, cauliflower, chard, kohlrabi, onion, leek, lettuce, peas, potatoes,parsnip, radish, spinach, turnip, asparagus crowns, etc.

Here's a link to the Oklahoma State University planting guide. Click over and have some fun in this glorious warm-ish late winter we are having.

Lacinato (Dinosaur) Kale
Our two favorite kales for garden and table are Red Russian and Dinosaur. They are both wonderful in salads and cooked.

After a two year break, vegetable plants are showing up again in our gardens; I only bought Red Russian seeds this year in order to re-enter the veggie growing bit gradually.

Cucumbers are a must, of course, but it's too early to start those seeds.

We'll buy a six pack of banana peppers and I'm undecided about tomatoes but there's plenty of time to think about those picky plants. Some things are easier to just buy from other gardeners who set up stands around town.
