Early Outdoor Seed Planting

Peas can be helped along with Guard-N Vetch.  You can see that make a slurry and cover the seeds.  This helps add nitrogen absorbing nodules to the roots, which creates a healthier plant and more sweet peas.

A good way to jump start your plants is to add organic sea weed plant food. Neptune Organics creates a terrific product.  I tested this a few years ago and found the starts (seedlings) with sea weed food were significantly larger.

Don't forget to cover the seeds with some type of protective cover.  Birds, chipmunks, and squirrels are very clever.  The cover protects your seeds.

April is a great time to get started with your garden;  some of the best vegetables to start include lettuce, spinach, peas, and bok choy
