As Soon As The Soil Can Be Worked"

    Some garden plants love cool weather.  The gardening books say you can plant lettuce and peas “as soon as the soil can be worked.”   I have never started my garden in March before, but the soil can now be worked, so yesterday I put the peas and some lettuce in.
    It is a bit scary planting so early, but it has always worked out for me before, although the earliest I have previously planted was April 6th (last year), and that was unusually early.  In 2013, I planted the peas on April 23rd.
    The peas are now in the ground so all I can do now is wait with my fingers crossed.
