Kale seedlings


I seeded some tomatoes and peppers, celeriac, and brassicas (broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, kale) on Wednesday, and already some seedlings are emerging. The brassicas germinate very quickly. I had some room left in the germination station after seeding the veggies, so I started some flowers, too — the marigolds greeted me this morning. Outside in the portable hoophouse, the onions and leeks have perked up after finally getting some real sunlight.

My friend Cree of Chelsea Morning Farm stopped by yesterday and seemed to think setting up the little hoophouse here was a good idea. Thanks for the encouragement, Cree! It was great to finally get a chance to chat. One of the many hats Cree wears is facilitator of our local Farm Beginnings program, which was very helpful to Elden and me as we made plans for Stone’s Throw Farm.
