Two weeks from sowing, and despite snow, sleet and freezing rain yesterday, I have seedlings in the hoophouse. On March 29 I sowed a mix of cold-hardy greens and some carrots and radishes. Of those, the Spinach, Arugula, Mache, Radishes, Broccoli, and Tatsoi have all germinated.
I know I run the risk of the broccoli buttoning up if it gets stressed, but I’m hoping it will be cool enough this early to avoid the heat stress that can bring that on — we’ll see!
Last weekend, Dan set up the seed starting area in the laundry room, and I got my peppers and tomatoes sowed. Spring is here, snow, sleet and freezing rain be damned!
