Braving the weather

Post  Weedless_ on 3/6/2011, 4:06 pm

Ok, so I can officially blame it all on you guys. You made me do it!
I planted beets, chard, broccoli and cauliflower today outside, and also topped off the "missing" plantings of spinach and radishes, which have been out there since about 10 days ago.
I also transplanted into larger containers my herbs and sorrel. They needed room for roots. My seed trays look a lot smaller now. Only have tomatoes, peppers and some spare brassicas in there (in case braving the weather was stupid and they all freeze this week outside). There is also a lonely tray of leeks waiting for their turn to be transplanted and blanched.
I am still awaiting for a shipment of heirloom tomato seeds. It's gonna be a tomatofest alright!

Just wanted to point out that uncovering the beds after winter was a great pleasure, because the thick straw mulch kept soil in perfect condition, and it looks good as new. It's also full of earthworms, which makes me even more excited. I could definitely see the difference between covered and uncovered beds' soil.

Wonderful Spring. It is so nice to be able to get into that soil and plant seeds.

Update: looks like brassicas survived overnight. The verdict is still out on lettuces (they were leggy anyway, so I wasn't holding my breath, but if they survived, it would be a minor miracle). Spinach and peas did ok. Let's see how they do when warm air hits them.
