The warm and sunny weather we had all last week has done some good. I hope it continues so I can work outside on my vacation this week.
Here's the outdoor round up in the GOOD, SO-SO, and the UGLY format.
Here's the GOOD:
This week's warm weather sprouted radishes. (And peas seem to be close behind. I saw one beginning to peak through the soil today)
A few of last year's onions that never sprouted, or died back wintered over and are making progress. Similarly I have a few small leeks as well.
My garlic is loving the warmth and protection of the row cover as well as the sunny days we've been having.
The romaine lettuce is just alright. Not much progress, but not looking bad.
The spinach is putting on new leaves but they are staying small.The UGLY:
My kale looks like this, as does my arugula(it was so bad, I didn't want a photo). I guess didn't harden them off very long. However, they are under row cover. Is it too warm or too cool? I don't know. The inner leaves on both seem to be doing alright so I think they will recover.
