AND this week marks the start of many fun activities. Yesterday I planted my third batch of microgreens. This is a new part of my winter gardening and eating. I've been learning with every batch, sharing the crop both as gifts and as extras for sale. The bottom line on microgreens is that they taste great! This batch includes Green Wave mustard, Dwarf Grey Sugar peas, Red Russian kale, Arugula, and for the FIRST time: radishes and basil.

Kale, chard and kolrabi for the hoophouse
FIRST predators of 2012: The night after planting, mice attacked the seeds that were unprotected by covers. Tonight everything will be covered, except for the mouse traps!
Mice like brassica seeds.
Tomorrow morning I'll be planting my FIRST seeds in the hoophouse - mesclun, lettuce, snow peas, sweet peas and fava beans.
And today I got my FIRST seed order of the year in the mail. I am one happy farmer.
