Fenton Friday: Broccoli and Cauliflower Seedlings Finally In
Finally got my booty in gear and got the broccoli and cauliflower starts in the ground. While doing that, as I dug in I found lots of small carrots that I missed the first time around. Bonus!
We had one good rain last weekend and the plot was happy, but now we are looking at another 7-10+ days of no precipitation. It is beautiful weather -- crisp, clear nights and sunny, blue-sky days -- so I cannot complain much about the lack of rain
Next project will be to get all the seeds in for radish, arugula, kohlrabi, etc. Any favorite or unusual varieties that you think I should try?
How is your edible garden growing this week?
