Planted the first seeds out today. The thermometer registered 50 F but you’ll notice there is still quite a bit of snow on the ground (that little drift is right below the thermometer).
Today’s seeds are: Cracoviensis Lettuce (47 days), Space Hybrid Spinach (37 days) and Bull’s Blood beet, grown for its lustrous red leaves (60 days).
The soil should warm up quickly under the row cover. Below, heath, heather, ground sand cherry and sedum as the alpine garden emerges from the snow.
