Today, while it is still technically winter, I started my 2012 gardening!  I had a half a barrel of compost from last fall, and I dumped it over my garden plot and I dug it in.  There were some pretty huge roots in there, and I don't know if it's the hedges encroaching, or if they're left over from last year's tomatillos; I'm guessing the former.  The garlic I planted last fall is starting to come up, and the crocuses are also in bloom.  My daffodils and tulips seem to be a week or two behind the ones in other people's yards around here, and East Arlington is in general a couple weeks behind Somerville, Cambridge, and Arlington.  I also planted 2 kinds of regular peas, 1 kind of sugar pea, and 1 kind of snow pea.  I'm hoping that they'll be producing by the time I'm ready to plant other veggies.  It is so strange to be planting things in the garden in the middle of March!  It's 76 outside as I write this, and it looks like it's going to be be as ridiculously unseasonable for the rest of the week at least. 

I have some other things that need to go into the ground this week too: bareroot strawberry plants, hardy hibiscus, and Lewisia.  I'll be starting things indoors too, whatever I have seed packets for.   Main outdoor planting of those starters probably won't take place until May, but if I find some pretty pansies I could put those in now.
