Planting the first seeds.
I welcomed the calendar start of spring Sunday by planting seeds for an early crop of cool weather vegetables. This being the deep South, it won't be cool for very long. (Truth be told, I threw on the A.C. for a few hours yesterday.)
Here's what went in, one seed at a time: Five Color Swiss Chard, gourmet baby greens, Early Wonder Beets, and Cherry Belle Radishes. I also planted about a dozen
kohlrabi seedings and thanks to my lovely plant markers (thanks Victoria!), I've marked all my rows.
I noticed lots of robins hopping all over the bed this morning. I'm hoping they are after worms and not seeds.
