The few plants living outside enjoyed a welcome dose of rain last night and this morning. Everything is looking a little more alive.
I’ve already been making use of my humble herb garden. I’m all about the fresh oregano lately, especially in salads.
Meanwhile, the rocket and spinach are coming along, though not sure what to make of the reddish/pink veins in my rocket. Maybe that’s just the variety?
I also have radishes on the go.
Inside is sprout central: French beans, tomatoes, onions, tomatillos, cucumber, melon, serranos, jalapenos, pepperoncinis… have I gone overboard?
The French beans are looking ready to go outside, but I’m worried – we still have very cool mornings, almost bordering on frosty. I would hate to lose my precious beans to a cold snap. What do you do? How do you know when it’s ready to plant out seedlings? Yes, I could just read my copy of Joy Larkom’s Grow Your Own Vegetables, but if I can learn from you folks, all the better.
