Beat the storm and be early?
I am brand new posting here, but I have been reading for months. I have devoured every shred of information I can about vegetable and herb gardening, and hope to be as successful as you all are.
I have had a 8' x 16' raised be for a couple of years, growing tomatoes, bell peppers, strawberries, and chives mostly. I just started composting and amending my soil "correctly" after years of so-so harvests. I bought Edward C. Smith's book, and it has inspired me to get serious about improving my results.
So my question for you all is... should I plant my 3 week old onion transplants, radish seed, lettuce seed, and carrot seed to beat the snow? I would use row covers on the onions (pic attached). Of course I can wait a week or so on the seeds, more if needed. I would mulch everything in with a couple inches of leaf mulch if that helps.
It looks like Tulsa will have sub-freezing overnight lows for a few weeks, so I'll probably put the black plastic down tomorrow since I took the top winter mulch layers off in anticipation of planting.
Thanks for any advice, this is a great place to learn, and the people seem to be so nice.
