Plant seeds early indoors! You can use a greenhouse, cold frame, or South facing window to get your garden sprouting despite snow outside. The factors to ensure germination and transplant success include timing, soil composition, and watering techniques. Learn how to stage indoor plantings so that your colder season veggies (like spinach and lettuce) and warm season ones (like squash and tomatoes) are ready for the garden when the climate is right. Try your hand at transplanting seedlings from flats into pots and develop your own planting calendar.

Ampersand Fundraiser Plant Sales!
We are excited for these plant sales Sunday April 2 and Saturday May 6 in Madrid, NM! In April we will offer lettuces, greens, and herbs that can be planted while there is still chance of frost. In May we will provide the chiles, tomatoes, cukes, and other plants to fill out the garden for summer. We are growing many heirloom and native varieties that are specially adapted to our arid climate. In the next newsletter, you will learn of some special varieties we will have for sale this year.
