Sowing the seeds of love....

On the list for gardening in March? Sowing lettuce and greens seeds.


I started this up about two weeks ago. I've been trying to stagger my plantings so we'll have fresh, young lettuce for a longer time in the spring. Typically, I pick a variety of lettuces so we'll have a bunch of different kinds.




My seeds spread out on the dirt...




I like to do a few rows every few week or so.




So far....we have some germination, but the warmer temps we've had lately are not helping my lettuce to germinate. Lettuce is a cool-season crop, so we need it to cool off a bit to help my babies along.


We'll see what happens. Stay tuned. This planting season has been unconventional, to say the least.....
