When I got the seed starting stuff out during Monday’s snow storm I quickly had two little helpers.
An arborist told us this tree isn’t a tree at all — it’s a weed allowed to get out of control. I love it so much more than all our so called respectable trees though. It shades my favorite bench, and has lovely white flowers.
A couple of months ago I did an experiment to see if I could get a jump on the season by sprouting lettuce under glass jars. As you can see from the picture above, the lettuce that I planted at the normal time without jars did much better. Oh well.
All is not lost!
Mid-March I planted some swiss chard and let it sprout the normal way. But then I covered a few of the seedlings with glass jars. Much better!
