Garden Records March 2016
Warmest March ever. Loving this. In the hoop house, the radishes (Shogoin, white icicle, cherry belle) are up, along with the spinach (experimental and bloomsdale) and arugula. The kale, broccoli, and cabbage transplants are in the ground and doing mostly okay, since I put down row covers to keep them from being eaten (chickens? voles? mice?). These are experiments comparing seeds of two different suppliers, because I'm just curious if there is any difference. Obviously there is, since the plants look NOTHING alike - color and leaf shape are radically different. More on that later. I need more row covers. Tomorrow after kettlebell class, I will stop at the Hobbit Hole and see if they have row covers and the larger peat disks for my starting trays. Then I must make room on the indoor greenhouse racks for another two trays of starts, and set up my last light fixture and mail back the one that does not work. That'll be enough to do, I think, in between doing homeschool with homeschool kid and picking up charter school kid at ICA.
