Garden entry 001

There were a bunch of old lettuce seeds (at least 6 years old) so I combined them and tossed them in the open side bed, above the garlic. I put the Botanical Interests Mache Big Seeded in the upper left corner, where it would stay shadey longer, and spinach (Burpee double take) down that side bed. I put Red Russian Kale (peaceful valley 2012) and rainbow lacinato (fedco 2010) in the lower middle beds, as well as the rest of the Mache.

It’s all very old seed (except the spinach) and the birds are hungry, so I doubt how much of it will survive. But I do want to know where to go looking for seedlings when it starts warming up for real.
