Tonight I got a flat of cauliflower and broccoli planted. They are watered, sitting on a heating pad and are being “sunned” by a grow light. Sounds like a nice life to me!
Last year I lost all my broccoli and cauliflower starts because I planted the starts without “hardening” them off...it was a major brain freeze on my part. I also planted them later last year...but I just read that in my area (Lake Stevens, WA) they can go in the ground beginning now. I hope to have them planted in the garden in about 8 weeks.
So far I have two different onion seeds started (about 2 weeks ago) and the broccoli and cauliflower now planted (these seeds also came from Territorial Seed Company). Now I need to get working on what I will be planting next...I am a little behind on my planning.
Seeds planted today:
Broccoli ~ Hybrid Broccoli Blend...containing four different seeds: Everest, Express, Southern Comet and Belstar.
