Sowing Seeds

A great weekend of sowing seeds:

  • Two rows of swiss chard, a row of beets and some mixed lettuce planted in the NW bed.
  • Two rows of radishes and a row of arrugula (roquette, rocket, "white pepper" in England...new to me) in the north bed.
  • House of Blues Sweet Peas from Dragonstonefarm Seed along the west and north fences.
  • North Shore Sweet Peas from Renee's Garden on the south fence.
Garden was prepped one week before with 3-4 inches of compost and natural fertilizer.  Lots of rain and cool temps with occasional sun breaks.  I hope it stays just wet enough until the plants reveal themselves above ground.

Must get some sunflowers in the ground.
