The first graduates of 2014!

After a long a tedious winter, we have a few mild days on tap and no sign of another arctic blast (thought it is still too early to say they will not arrive). While all the weather was going on outside, I was growing indoors. The first seedlings were set in mid January and transplanted to individual pots by mid February.  This past few days they have been placed outside for a few hours to get them used to wind and natural sunshine. They are now big enough to go into the garden!!

Last week I spent making raised beds and filling them with compost and one of the beds are just 4 foot square and is intended to be used as a cold frame for early and late vegetables. This is where the first graduating seedlings are going to be set.
