I finally received the last of my seeds in the mail yesterday. This package was from Southern Exposure Seed Exchange. It had Detroit Dark Red beets, Danvers carrots, some bunching onion, cilantro and parsley. Well, I thought it would be the last of the seeds I needed. Turns out I forgot to add snow peas to my cart before checking out. I’ll have to hunt down those seeds locally.
Fun fact about ordering from Southern Exposure: They wrap your shipment in pages of their old seed catalogs!
Now that I had all but one of my seeds, I set out to plant what could be direct-sown in the beds.
- 1 row bunching onion
- 2 rows of red beets
- 1 row of golden beets
- 2 rows of turnips
- 1 row of French Breakfast radishes
- 1 row of White Icicle radishes
- 3 rows of Danvers carrots
- 1 row of Dragon carrots
- 1 row of parsnips
It’s the time of year that the sun is setting earlier, so I had to break out the head lamp. Becca snapped this pic of me and JP planting in the dark.
Now that I had the head lamp working again, I figured I didn’t need to wait for the sun to come up to do the morning chores. The seeds in the soil blocks are still looking great!
