Saturday was a great day to be in the garden. I readied the cold frames with jugs of water to act as heat sinks and with thermometers.
I planted a few seeds from each of these packets.
As I'm planting the broccoli raab I read on the packet that they want you to plant them in rows three feet apart. Really? Within the row, it says they can be two inches apart. I don't have space for rows three feet apart. I only planted about a dozen seeds just to give them a try. This is a new vegetable for us. I watered the cold frames and closed the lids. Grow seeds, grow!
While I was planting, my wonderful husband was working over the concrete pieces we're planning to use to edge a new planting bed. They are of various thicknesses so he is chipping off the extra concrete. Then, he is cracking some of them into smaller pieces so they are relatively similar in size.
He made a lot of progress, but more await his attention.
I know the gardening season has officially begun when my garden hat comes out of hibernation and hangs on the hall tree again each night.
