Winter Garden Update

I am SOOOO excited!  I checked on My Gardening Experiment today and I have SPROUTS!!!  There are just a few, but they are there! WooHoo!!!

I apologize for the blurriness, but my I couldn’t get the camera to focus on the little sprouts.

We’ve been having a pretty mild February here in Missouri.  We’ll have a few days of very frigid air and then it jumps up to the 50’s.  Today we were close to 70!  So, I pulled back the covers on the cold frame and watered the soil a little bit and let them ‘breathe’.   I’ll check them again next week and see how they’re coming along.

In the meantime, I’m getting the other raised bed ready for carrots!

    OH, so you are from Missouri, too? AWESOME!!! This has been some weird winter for sure! Signs of life already. But don’t worry, winter isn’t over yet. When it gets warm like this it gets our gardening fingers itching to get in the dirt. Depending on how long this warmer weather lasts, you can plant a few things, BUT…. We will get zapped again many times before spring actually arrives. Well, I wouldn’t bet on it though. You just never know… Even though I want to get in the dirt I don’t get in to big of a hurry until May. GOOD LUCK TO YOU AND GET DIRTY!!!
