Spring seeds in the cloche

I cleared enough space under the cloche to put in some seeds:

Radish ‘Easter Egg’ (Raphanus sativus) These will pop up in no time.

Cilantro (Coriandrum sativum) Starting cilantro and parsley early when the weather is cool means a long season of harvest.

Lettuce ‘Salad Bowl’ (Lactuca sativa) A bright green variety with large, ruffled leafs that was popular in the 1950’s.

Spinach ‘Bloomsdale Long Standing’ and ‘Lavewa’ (Spinacia oleracea)

Scallion (Bunching onion) ‘Pacific Pearl’ (Allium cepa)

The kale and brassicas in the salad mixes we grew over the winter were such a success that I’m throughly tired of them and can’t wait for simple, mild, clean lettuces.

About Mulysa

I love my work as a landscape designer and artist. When I'm not planning homesteads or working in the studio, you'll find me hiking, photographing, gardening, baking, cooking vegetarian meals with friends, reading and working on sustainability issues...with my baby on my hip in Portland, Oregon.
