Ah, it is so nice to enjoy spring weather in Vancouver, of course, you have to get it while it lasts. Conveniently, there is more daylight to go around. As we move into spring, our greens switched to daylight saving time and began growing in high gear – hooray they’ll soon be lunch!
With the beginning of April comes the time to remove the low tunnels at David Thompson Schoolyard Market Garden. Kale and collards will leave the comfort of the greenhouse to be transplanted in beds covered with fresh compost. We’ve already started the cilantro by seed outside. At the Van Tech Schoolyard Market Garden, lettuce, carrots and beets are scheduled to appear in the first week of April.
It’s official. The season has begun!
