Despite the fact that it SNOWED yesterday (a very rare occurrence for Portland, let alone at the end of March), the lettuces are doing really well in the little grow house. Spinach is hit and miss -- either the slugs got a bunch or the seeds were too old. Broccoli and cabbage will need to be transplanted out of the little pots soon. We'll be eating lettuce thinnings in a couple of weeks!
Peas are growing verrrryyyy sloooowly probably because of all the cold weather we've had. The greenery in back of the peas is crimson clover, a cover crop we plant in the fall. It holds the soil, keeps the weeds out (mostly) and adds nitrogen to the soil. Sweet!
I should be planting more seeds this weekend. It's almost time to plant tomato and pepper starts.
