I'm especially excited about my 'Peppermint' Swiss Chard and 'Ruby Gem' lettuce from Renee's Garden. This lettuce is seriously on steroids! I'm almost ready to pick the leaves for baby greens, but will harden off the plants this weekend, moving them into the garden next week. The chard will also go in the garden next week, but I'm reserving some for large containers, as I saw at the Halifax Public Gardens did last year. They tucked the boldly coloured plants between more traditional container plants and it was electric!
Anyway, it's one of those 'two step back' days for spring.. cool, damp, rainy today, so it's a good day to seed a few more flats indoors - more 'Ruby Gem' as a succession crop!!
|Ruby Gem you are getting rather big!|

|Sungold tomatoes. I need to move my lights up a notch.|
