Two weeks ago I did a huge planting and am happy to see that many of the seeds have started to sprout. Some of the ones I planted early in the year have already been eaten (I assume) so I had to replant.
Bed A is filled with potatoes.
In bed B I added a row of red sails/rouge de hiver (which has sprouted), Tyee spinach (mysteriously disappeared), a row of speckled butter head (growing spectacularly) and a row of freckles lettuce (also growing fabulously).
Bed C is waiting for the warm weather….still under wraps.
In bed D, I planted a row each of parsnips, radishes, bolero carrots, fingerling carrots, purple haze carrots. Today I added four rows of beets (red ace and a blend) and also replanted some of the kale which has all disappeared along the radishes. Nothing in this bed seems to be doing well, or maybe it is just too early in the season. If things continue this way, I am going to replant with bush beans in June.
Also pulled out the last of last years leeks…will likely eat them in the next day or so.
All the spring flowers are coming out and the rock garden is particularly beautiful right now. The pictures of the triliums were taken from there.
