First seeds in the ground!

Its been a busy week so far…I tried to hide from the weather on Monday, so spent it doing errands and paperwork. Yesterday we prepped the beds and got the row cover set up in the coldframes, and today we planted spinach, radish, chard, arugula, carrots, and beets! The row cover should, in theory, give the plants twice the frost protection. It is almost 30 degrees inside the coldframes on a sunny day, like today; but at night it drops down almost as cold inside as outside. Hopefully the soil will absorb that heat during the day, and as it is radiated up at night, the damp row cover should trap it, keeping things above freezing underneath! Here’s hoping, anyway.

Also, yesterday I peaked at the tomatoes we seeded in trays and saw the first seedling popping its head out of the peat!

Here’s a shot of Mia…yesterday was exhausting for her too. A few breaks from greenhouse work were 20 minute walks with lots of ball throwing…good for both of us I think!
