Cold Crop Finished

Well today is my 27th birthday. I have to say I am pretty happy with where I am in my life. There are always place for improvement and my life sure has it, but overall life is good.

I finished planting the rest of my cold crops today. In bed #2 I planted 2 butter-crunch lettuce's, 2 romaine, bourdex spinich, swiss chard, 4 kinds of carrots, beets, mustard greens, dinosaur kale, and more shelling peas along the fence.

I thought this picture with labels might be helpful.

The weather was rather crummy today. 35 MPH winds with highs in the mid 50's but still very sunny. It sure felt colder then that out there! Luckily the seeding went quickly, we will have to see who pops up where with this crazy wind. When seed is only 1/8" down it had a tendency to 'travel', LOL!


  1. It's been rather balmy here in ohio the past few days. 80-s and humid. Tomorrow is supposed to be back down in the 60's though. I'm glad, I don't want my cooler weather plants to shrivel up just as soon as they start popping through the soil or should I say the Mel's mix!

    Oh, and Happy 27h Birthday!

  2. What a great way to spend your birthday, even if it was crummy. I was raking leaves in that d#%*^ wind!
    Much love to you and I am finally following your blog officially :-)

  3. Tosha~ Glad to hear your weather is cooling back down! We don't have humidity here in CO, and I don't mind saying I'm GLAD! I can't wait to see pictures of your seedlings!

    G~Raking leaves? Don't you mean chasing them, LOL? Love ya!
