Now that our spring seeds have arrived from the various organic and heirloom specialty catalogs, we can focus on getting a head start on the growing season. We planted trays of kale, lettuce, dill, parsley, and cilantro this past week that will eventually go out in our late winter/early spring beds. And we planted nasturtium (Tropaeolum majus), a great flower that also doubles as a nice addition to salads.
We don’t yet have a greenhouse, so all of our starts are indoors under 3 large grow lights. Hopefully in future years we can budget for a passive solar greenhouse to both give us more space and cut down on energy costs as we move forward with the farm.
