Since most of the veggies died a few weeks ago from the cold, we have been scrambling to remove them to make way for new veggies!
This puts new meaning into “spring cleaning.” All the old, brown and yellow, wilting leaves must go. Each bed must be cleared on hands and knees. The old stuff goes into a wheelbarrow to be hauled to the compost pile.
Then yay! It’s clean and the soil is ready to be prepared for either new transplants or seeds.
Thankfully, we already had some transplants ready to go into the ground. Green onions, romaine head lettuce, Swiss chard, a small amount of parsley, dill, and cilantro with more varieties of head lettuce soon to come!
We’re also growing dinosaur kale bunches this year to offer more variety for you to choose from.
The seeds go in quickly, but take a bit to germinate in the cold soil. They get watered daily and some are already an inch or two tall.
Before you know it, but not soon enough we will have new fresh veggies to eat!
