Seedling Life: Direct Seed and Indoor

I do not usually plant warm weather crops in the ground until April 15th. But since the mesquite trees are showing new leaves we will not likely have another freeze.

Our kitchen windows have three shelves per window (3 windows in total) of seedlings getting their start before they are hardened off and then planted in the garden. They're coming in fast. I've already planted a dozen beans in the beds.



Outside we direct seeded loads of cold weather crops that I'm now thinning. Lettuces, broccoli, beets, radish, celery, fava, dill, celantro and the like. After thinning them I covered the beds in reed to give the plants a break while they get used to the shift.
