Round 1

April 16, 2013

went in the ground over the weekend: lettuce, spinach and peas in one bed, beets and carrots in the other.  Some oregano made it through the winter in the 1st bed and a bit of mint survived in the 2nd.  I say “a bit” … it took over half the bed and that’s what’s left after I harvested some and pulled the rest to the side.

Sadly, my kale seedlings didn’t make it to the beds.  Our cat took a liking to them and ate / rubbed her face against them until they were no more.  Starting seeds for Round 2 tonight: tomatoes, beans, peppers, melons and some herbs.

    CAMDEN!!! Bad Kitty! Baby kale must resemble a cross between catnip and a grooming tool to her. I’ve heard mint is invasive. I love the shadow of the farmer/photographer in your photos 🙂 Hope the spring stays lovely in NJ, I’ve heard talk of us getting another frost next week 😦

    Ha. Baby kale must share some qualities of catnip. It’s fairly pungent, even as a seedling.

    Mint is invasive. My mom let it take over half our front yard when I was growing up in Texas. So I’m keeping an eye on it. It’s a wonderful thing to smell working out in the garden, I can’t get rid of it.
