Finished compost from the 2010 balcony garden's green & brown trimmings
I'll use this compost to enrich the soil for the seeds sown directly outdoors.
Mail-order seeds from Cubit's
"Black Gold" for 'Red Velvet'
Here's my sowing list for this weekend:
Direct sow outdoors in containers:
Peas - 'Little Marvel' (w)
Radishes - 'Plum Purple' (c), 'Pink Punch'(r), 'Easter Egg II' (r)
Kale - 'Lacinato' (w)
(I'll save the 'Red Velvet' lettuce in the photo for early April)
Sow indoors under grow-lights:
Eggplant -'Rosa Bianca' (c)
Pepper - 'Alma Paprika' (c)
Tomatoes - 'Chianti Rose' (r), 'Gold Nugget' Yellow Cherry (c), 'Red Robin' (m), 'Silvery Fir Tree' (p), 'Sophie's Choice' (p)
I use sterile seedling mix for all seeds sown indoors.
Well, I better get started before I get distracted (again) by faint sunshine & succumb to the lure of a nearby 'Whitcomb' cherry blossom tree -- yesterday the pink buds looked close to popping open.
What are your gardening activities for this first weekend in March?
