The early garden continues to grow
The weather has been generally in the 40's during the day and with rain the last couple of days the early crops (lettuce, spinach, greens, cabbage and kale) are doing well. Now for the starts indoors: the tomatoes are about a foot tall and so begins the task of transplanting into bigger pots. Next year I won't be so quick to start tomatoes in early February! The peppers and basil look great and are growing slowly which is fine by me...I am also trying to use a mixture of soil that uses 1/3 sand, 1/3 compost and 1/3 clay....we'll see how this goes!
