As far as vegetable gardening goes, I've got lots of trays of seeds and seedlings: in the house, in the garage, and out on the patio. I've also already planted out some seedlings into my new kitchen garden: kale, sorrel, leeks, lupins, salad greens. I'm hoping for a better harvest this year than last; I lost the majority of my plants due to slug damage and to an extreme pH change. By far it was the worst gardening year I've had in my ten years of growing. Although there's not a lot I can do about slugs, at least the pH has gone back to acceptable growing levels on the affected beds.
