Seeding Experiments

I am experimenting this year with allowing my spring-planted lettuce and radish to develop and drop their own seeds.

2012 Seed Orders

I was sitting at the dining room table yesterday, browsing through my 2012 seed catalogs. Exciting stuff! There’s so much I’m looking forward to trying this year, I thought I might let you know about some of the seeds I’ll be ordering and why I’m choosing to give them a place in my garden.

I finally got around to transplanting all the seedlings growing on my new grow-light stand. They look so great!
