Last Saturday, Lisa, David, Wendy and I began seeding the garden’s first crops of the season indoors. We started with the alliums (leeks, onions, and shallots), brassicas (broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, and cauliflower) and greens (lettuce and spinach).
After one week under the lights in the basement, most of the seedlings are up and growing. The trays containing the alliums and brassicas also spent the week on heating pads. (Our basement barely reaches 60 degrees this time of year.)
Next week, we will be seeding the celery, fava beans, marigolds, and sesame, along with transplanting the young brassicas. It feels good to have the garden underway!
