It is chilly outside today and that is a good thing!
I could have done this a month ago, but today it finally was time!
I cleaned out the old lasagna garden!
Raking the surface after pulling out last fall's dried plants, I saw several earthworms! Wonderful!
I planted two cool weather plants (which is why I said I could have done this a month ago!). Cilantro and "Rocky Top Lettuce Mix" from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds . I have grown this lettuce for several springs and just love it! It has 6 varieties of leaf lettuce and probably a thousand seeds in the packet. [Not wanting to thin so many baby plants later this year, I sowed the seed more sparingly. It has been very reliable to sprout and grow almost 100%!]
There is always such hope in getting out into the garden this time of year! Nothing too difficult about sowing a few seeds, raking lightly, sprinkling softly with the gentle hose and then returning to reading the library book which was due yesterday....!
Returning it will be one of the errands later today!
