Ready, Set, Plant!
It was a busy morning out in the Sedgwick County Extension Master Gardeners Demonstration Garden!
We started by pulling some weeds and then incorporating compost into two of the beds where we would be seeding.
Then, some very dedicated Extension Master Gardeners laboriously planted the tiny seeds so as not to waste too many.
We planted ‘Sparkler’ and ‘Easter Egg’ Radishes, Encore Lettuce Mix, Elegance Greens Mix, and ‘Majesty’ Lettuce in the Salad Garden.
In the Family of 4 Garden, we planted ‘Bright Lights’ Swiss Chard, ‘Touchstone Gold’ Beets, ‘Chioggia’ Beets, and ‘Round Romeo’ Carrots. We also planted ‘Bright & Spicy’ Salad mix, ‘Mottistone’ Lettuce, ‘Berenice’ Lettuce, and Sweet Reds & Greens Lettuce Mix. We planted two ‘Cheddar’ Cauliflower plants to replace some of the Brussels Sprout plants.
We also seeded ‘Safir’ Cutting Celery in the tomato block. We maybe should have started it inside and then transplanted it outside…we’ll see how it does. At this point, the only thing yet to be planted in the Family of 4 garden are the tomatoes, basil, fennel, and cilantro. Those should all get planted about 3 weeks from now.
Then, after the lettuces and radishes are done in May, we’ll plant the squash in that space.
