About a month and a half ago, Coen and I started a few indoor “crops” in a little seed pod planter that we got on a groupon special. I also at that time ordered a bunch of organic seeds from an online site, www.groworganic.com .
About a week before the end of February, we planted a few rows of veggies outside. Here they are as of today:
This is our cover crop of winter cereal rye. Once it is about to flower, we’ll till it into the ground to create more organic material and also some air pockets in the soil. Our soil is very rocky and brittle, so I’m hoping this will help it out. We’ll also do a garden-wide cover crop come fall. Then we’ll sick the chickens on it. 🙂
I think that these are carrots. I should have labeled. You can see the “junk” we have floating around our flower beds. So far, weeds haven’t been much of an issues, but we’ll have to thin the crops here pretty soon once we see which plants are the bulkiest.
Spinach in a different bed (started a few weeks ago).
I’m hoping this is is kale, but I’m not sure.
Sweet peas! (I’m fairly sure.)
Our first-planted, super spinach! I can’t wait to eat it all.
