March Update

English peas podded early. Too much heat. We are switching to an old heirloom Wando next season. On the other hand turnips are doing nicely. Most folks in tis part of the world prefer the greens rather than the turnips so we will be harvesting both.  The plan is to follow both crops with southern peas in April.  Top Pick Pinkeye and Top Pick Cream the first cycle. Later on we will plant Top Pick Pinkeye and Zipper Cream. We also intend to plant Vardeman Sweet Potatoes for the summer.

We have some Brandywine Red tomatos that will be ready for transplanting in a couple of weeks, some nice yellow squash, and a few very hot Hanebero Peppers.

Wish I had better news on the green peas. That is farming.
