It's not too late at all to plant potatoes. Planting the middle of March, as is usually done around here, is really too early. Last year our potato plantlings rotted in the ground and when we replanted in late April, the potatoes did very well. Even planting them now, they will mature by late August. They could even be planted up to one month from now and they would be mature about harvest time.
I haven't been over to the garden since Friday..... I'm afraid to it's been so dry except for Sunday was rainy...
The spinach and lettuce were just peeking thru, good thing I know between them and a weed in my old age! The peas are doing nothing, but my seeds are 6 and 7 years old and werent stored all that well, so I bought new ones the other day, I'll get those in today. Good to know it's not too late to get potatoes in!
are your lettuce, spinach, carrots and peas up yet? I haven't planted much from seed yet, spinach has been up long enough that the first true leaves are about the size of a silver dollar, and the carrots went in over the weekend. I have a few bedraggled spinach plants I overwintered, only enough for dh's sandwiches. It has been way too wet here, planted the potatoes last Saturday, a month later than usual. We have transplanted the onions, broccoli, cabbage, and a few parsley plants out into the garden, but they have shown little growth. I know I will be trying to harvest spinach for a salad in about a week!
Just put the dough in the fridge..... had to sample a little of course. :)
Those are going to be wonderful Beth! Thank you!
hehe and DH says he never met a home-made chocolate cookie he could love.
I think I got it!
for me, those chocolate almond cookies are somewhat addicting, like girl scout thin mint cookies. But they are very filling, so I can usually stop at one or two cookies. I use Penzeys cocoa, don't know if that is what makes these so good, oh, and I use the mini choc chips and they get kinda lost in the cookie, think regular sized chocolate chips would be more noticeable....this is one of my favorite cookies, and I am a master cookie baker/eater!
