seed starting

Yay! "Farming" starts again this week!

OK, it is in miniature, in the basement and under lights. Nevertheless it is soil and seeds and lights and warmth! This weekend I'll start kale, kohlrabi and cabbage under the lights. They will be inside germinating and growing until it warms up a bit, not too long. In less then 8 weeks these cold hardy plants will make their way outside. Also getting ready to go in the ground soon are lettuce and spinach seeds. Under a floating row cover (those fabric blankets you see over planting beds this time of year) these seeds can grow easily, and mean that soon we can eat from our garden again. Can't wait, starved for greens at this time of year!
