Garden Friday – The first of the starts
This week, I started broccoli and boc choi starts. I’m not sure what drove the decision: my anxiousness for spring to arrive or because I’ve been emboldened by how well my lettuce is holding up underneath a couple of panes of glass. Either way, on Sunday afternoon, my preschooler and I sat in our sunny, south facing window and started 2 flats of a mix of broccoli and boc choi plants. I was so impressed with the precision of his 4-year-old fingers in dropping seeds in one at a time.
The flats have been sitting in my south facing window ever since. Today I noticed them peaking through. Once late Feburary arrives, I will like transplant them to a south facing bed that I can keep covered in plastic; by that point the frosts will be unlikely but I’ll still need warmth and protection from the sun.
Or at least that is the plan. When do you plan on getting the spring garden started?
