I’ve slowly been working in seeds and transplants. I don’t want to get too sucked into this unusually warm Connecticut weather, but it just feels like stuff needs to get planted!
This weekend was a bit more seasonal. In the 60s, overcast. I just got back from a Minnesota business trip.. where it rained like it was going out of style. I missed the bright, warm sun of this weird Connecticut spring! But here I am back to reality.
Today I got arugula seeds started, miner lettuce seeds going, black radish, radish mix, carrots, pole and bush beans all started from seed in the garden. In the meantime, the mesclun mix from the Gastrocast seed special have sprouted. Kale has sprouted. The peas in the garden have sprouted and the peas in the earthbox are getting heartier.
Honestly, I’m most excited about the pole and bush beans I planted. The pole beans are a mix of kentucky wonder pole and borlotto beans from the Gastrocast seed special. Last year the three bush (provider) beans I planted were CRAZY productive. That’s what I’m looking for. I think the pole beans will be gorgeous running up the simple wooden teepee I built.
Soon I will need to thin the kale and mesclun. The mesclun transplants I put in are doing very, very well. I ate a few leaves today. Delicious!
