Signs of Life
My garden is a off to a bit of a slow start this spring. Im blaming the weather. Its nearly May and the soil thermometer still registers below 50 degrees, but signs of life are beginning to appear. My Watermelon and Easter Egg II radishes germinated. As did the Bordeaux spinach and my Golden Ball turnips. Im actually quite pleased the turnips turned up.
I accidentally left their seed packet outside in the rain for over a week. When I peeled apart the soggy packet, the seeds inside were beginning to sprout. I decided to try and plant them, which proved difficult because the wet seeds stuck together. I felt that the situation was dubious at best, but the seeds have sprouted, albeit it in very tight clumps! Ive also got Dakota and Super Sugar Snap peas, mustard greens, Chioggia beets, Chantenay carrots, Santo cilantro, Walla Walla and Red Long of Tropea onions, Tom Thumb, Forellenschluss, Red Sails and a green romaine lettuce going, as well as some a spicy baby greens mix.
Im curious what you all are planting and what is up in your gardens, so do tell. Happy Spring!
