Seeds in the Ground

I had been hoping to get outside this morning and plant a second round of lettuces, radishes, etc with the Demo Garden crew. We also have some onion sets that need to get planted and some beets, carrots, and Swiss Chard that could be planted any time in the next 2-3 weeks.

Unfortunately, when I went out to inspect the garden, I discovered that the top 1/4 inch of soil was still frozen. Not exactly ideal for planting seeds! Hopefully we’ll be able to get everything planted by Fresh Seedingthe end of the week.

Now is also the time to plant eggplant, peppers, and tomatoes inside for planting outside in early to mid-May. So, in addition to cleaning up the storage shed (yeah, we have to do that too!), we planted a bunch of seeds inside today.
