Soaking in the Sun

This week brought warm temperatures in the 50s and even 60 and full sun. Each day when I got home from work I put a few of the hardy seedlings out for some time in the sun. I noticed that this time last year we shoveled the snow off the raised beds. This week it has melted and gone and the cold frame was in the 70s. Spring is on the way!

Here's my kale (both lacinato and winterbor) sizing up nicely with a few oak leaf lettuce plants.
Also some red acre cabbage seedling thanks to Miss M.
My sweet potatoes which were started on Jan 30th are showing more growth but it is slow going. Luckily there are still a few months before the slips will need to go in the ground.
Recent seeds sown:

Red Acre Cabbage (6) from Miss M.
Winter Savory from Miss M
Chocolate Peppers from Miss M

Catskill Long Island Improved Brussels Sprouts (12) from 2008
Freckles Romaine Lettuce (6) from 2009

We sure are ahead of things weatherwise compared to last year. Your seedlings look great ! That cabbage came up in no time ?

When do you get settled at the new house ?
