First Planting!

I finally got a free hour to plant the herbs and vegetables that I bought yesterday at Home Depot. Home Depot had a limited supply of garden plants from Bonnie Plants. They are probably more expensive than my nurseries, but now they are in the ground a week or two earlier.

Here’s what I planted: two large pots mixed lettuce, 6 spinach plants, 6 kale plants, 2 rosemary plants and 6 curly parsley plants. There are 3 or 4 pots of sweet mint that I will plant later in the mint garden. We had a brief shower around 4:00, but were able to eat on the deck for the second night in a row. This warm weather is extremely welcome!

There is rain in the forecast for the next few days, but scattered, so I am hoping to get the peas in the ground tomorrow, along with some other greens and radishes. We should have heavier rain over the weekend.
