I've been hearing that you readers want me to post more often. Sorry Sorry Sorry!!! I'm in the throes of writing a master's thesis and have NO TIME for anything else. Ok...that's not entirely true. I have managed to keep the garden going and I've got a bit of an update for you:

Here is the coldfrema that has been going the longest. There are 15 dwarf peas and 2 dwarf lettuces that are looking pretty good. These were started in January and went out into this frams at the beginning of Febrary

Here's another shot to give you an idea of the size of the lettuce. It should be ready for eating this coming weekend!

Here are some more lettuces that are growing nicely and that were seeded at 2-week intervals so that we wouldn't get all of our harvest at the same time!

Here are the last lettuces that I started indoors and that will be transplanted outside. After these, all of my lettuce for the rest of the year will be directly seeded outside.

5 more dwarf peas to go outside. The next round of peas will be started directly outside.

Although I started a little late, here are pots of broccoli that will be transplanted in a couple of weeks

Here's a shot of the back of the seed pack. It's a teaser for the next posting which will talk about what this info on seed packs means...
