We did it! Threw fertilizer here and there, rotor tilled in fresh compost dirt, planted seeds after threat of frost. Frost came: turned on the sprinklers at some early ungodly hour and let it run, as the water is warmer than the air not allowing ice to form, and the sun did not have a crystal prism through which it could burn our babies!
So, seeds in... popped out the ground, had an initial weeding, thinning and OH YEAH.. .We have spinach, lettuce and strawberries for our first salad of the season. A side salad, but oh so good. I will remember to rinse those leaves 6 times as opposed to 4 or 5. Dirt is not good on the teeth.
We had the most delicious salad for lunch, simply lettuce, spinach and a strawberry! Now on that little plate I put 14 whole plants each that I thinned from the garden. Not throwing any away anymore! This is sweet!
Hope your gardening is starting to produce for you too! Sweet seeds to salad sensation!
