Right now I’m sitting out on the porch in the sun. I’m not even wearing a jacket. These little seedlings I just started last Monday are enjoying a little sunshine on the porch too. Look how much they’ve grown already.
My first two rounds of seedlings are happy in the cold frame. It’s 70 degrees in there. The onions were started a month ago and the greens a week later. Right after I put them out in the cold frame we had a stretch of winter weather, so they got off to a slow start. A few nights the soil froze solid, but the seedlings didn’t seem to mind. Now that we’ve had a few sunny days they’re starting to take off. I just sowed some Easter Egg Radish seeds in there too. Easter egg radishes for Easter?
I also started a late crop of “braising mix” (kale and mustards mostly.) I didn’t start them early enough for much of a fall harvest, but in one of the beds they are all still growing under a floating row cover.
