The 2011 spring gardening has for me here in Northern VA. Although the temperature is still hovering around 30 these days and 25 F at night spring will soon be upon and plants must be ready to go in the ground. At this part of the show I’ll just give a brief outline of what I’m doing for spring gardening right now. On February 13 I sowed bunching onion and chive seeds in vermiculite, let them soak water and placed them in the upstairs bedroom. The warmest room in the house. On February 20 after sprouts started to rise I moved the tray to under their lighting system. Today’s chore is to transplant them to a mixture of 1 part each vermiculite, peat moss and compost. Better known as Mel’s Mix. Mel Bartholomew of square foot gardening fame.
