Winter startup

Its February. This morning it was 18 degrees here in Galisteo outside of Santa Fe. The nighttime temps ae slowly warming up, meaning that new starts and wintered over plants will have a better shot at taking off. Its definitely not too early to get some greens in the ground- tatsoi, pac choi, kale, chard, lettuces, spinach, arugula, claytonia, mesclun and sassy salad mixes, to name a few. You can get all these and more at Agua Fria Nursery in Santa Fe. And be sure to start 'airing out' your beds on these warm days in the 50's and 60's. Better ventilation will help control those unwanted early aphids, and will give the birds something to feast on!
