NOTE - many of you have sent me plant request emails, but not all of you heard back from me - don't worry! I am tagging and collecting them in a special folder, and your requests will be set aside!
We love this time of the spring because of the promise of salads and greens. Today I planted quite a few things in our main garden, in the back rows, including two types of collard greens, Red Russian Kale, Swiss Chard Bright Lights, Red and Purple and bicolored Mustard, and some lettuce that was growing in large driveway pots since November. Tomorrow I hope to finish planting the lettuce - I was going to plant the beets as well, but the plants aren't quite large enough yet. I actually put lots of the greens and lettuces in large pots on our deck....we can never get enough!
I am in the midst of transplanting tomato, pepper and eggplant seedlings....but the weather is also making us think of kayaking!
Hope to see some of you on Sunday at West Point on the Eno, where I will be talking about success with Tomatoes, Peppers and Eggplant, and doing demos on transplanting and seed saving - from 1-3 PM.
