All of the greens that I planted in big pots have started sprouting -- this is the red romaine. They've all started sprouting, except for the radicchio. I hope those seeds weren't too old, but we'll see.
The cucumbers needed to be potted up, so I chose the best 8 plants and repotted them today. These are the Ashley cucumbers. They'll go into the garden next week, weather permitting, but I didn't want them to get root bound.
Meanwhile, the cabbages and peas are all growing nicely. I'm sure the rain is going to help them grow even more. I've never had much luck with these coles in the past, other than one cauliflower plant a couple of years ago, so I'm praying for these!
I took all of my old left over seeds and saved seeds that have gotten too old (pumpkins, squashes, Brussels sprout seeds, cabbage seeds from five years ago, just a lot of old seeds) and combined them in a bag the other day. Today I tilled and dug up a patch behind the chicken house, then just broadcast them all over, then raked it over. Hopefully the rain will water them. I'm sure the chickens will pick thru and eat some of it, but hopefully some will grow to give them some sprouts to pick at. I just needed to purge my seed stores.
