This past weekend – the last weekend in January – I got to sow my first seeds outdoors of the season!
I chose to plant Burpee’s Bibb lettuce in a pot on the porch. Last summer/fall I started these seeds indoors and transplanted them into the raised in the fall, but I don’t think they did very well. I’m not entirely sure why, but I’m going to try something different and see if I get different results.
These seeds are “container friendly” and according to the map on the back of the seed packet, I can sow them outdoors in our area between January and April.
Now I wait 7-10 days.
In other news, some of the cold weather crops that I sowed indoors last week have sprouted! Kale, spinach-mustard, and mustard greens are coming up.
