2017 Planting Calendar

During the February Pollen-pocolypse, when I couldn't bear to go outside, I made a plan for the rest of the year, looking up the planting and harvest times of all the seeds I want to sow this year. I'm going to post it here.

February 15 - Plant 1st Peas (Did it, obviously)
February 28 - 1st Peas sprout (They're coming up this week, a bit slow)
April 1 - Plant 2nd Peas
   Plant Kale
   Plant Morning Glories
   Plant Nasturtiums
   Plant Moon Flowers
   Plant Hollyhocks
   Plant Okra indoors
   Plant Artichoke indoors
   Plant Asparagus indoors
April 11 - Kale sprouts
   Moon Flowers sprout
April 13 - Nasturtiums sprout
April 15 - Plant Pumpkins
   Plant Squash
   Plant Corn
   Plant Beans
   2nd Peas sprout

All the information for planting times and harvest times are taken from the backs of seed packets. Will they be accurate? Do I even have enough room in my garden for all this? Probably not.

I also want to plant Amaranth and Carrots. We'll see.
