We did it!

We planted a new crop of broccoli in our garden today. We put 18 plants into the ground today. I cannot believe that broccoli does so well here in the middle of winter, but it does. The spot its in gets enough sunlight to keep it warm by day and on the rare occasion of freezing nights, we have ways of keeping these little plants warm. This is going to be a fun experiment. I can't wait to see what happens!

We also started some lettuce seeds today. Nine lettuce seeds to be exact. If these germinate (we sowed them in pots inside, so they should germinate), we'll sow another 8 in a few weeks for a staggered harvest. Between these lettuce and the spinach we sowed two weeks ago, we might have a nice spring garden.
