Yesterday I didn't do much outdoors, but I did put in some seed. I seeded the rest of the peas. I was trying to do it quickly so of course forgot to put in the inoculant. Oh well. I guess I'll see how much better the other section of peas do compared to this one. I did notice one plant starting to come up in the previously planted peas. Just one. I hope I see them soon. I keep thinking they ought to be up by now. My spinach has started to come up and I think of them as slower germinators.
Japanese turnips were next on my list. I plant my turnips around my big Michihili cabbage. I give each cabbage a 2'x3' area as they get so big, but the space is a bit of a waste until the cabbage grows a bit. So I seed Japanese turnips around the outside. The turnips will ripen over quite while, but don't seem to be hurt when they start getting shaded by the cabbages leaves. Probably by then it is getting warmer and they like the shade.
The last seeds that I planted were radishes. I just planted them in a spot where the squash will be growing. They ought to be out of there by the time the squash needs it. The radishes all ripen at once. I'll get way too many at a time, but they keep well in the fridge. Last year they had root maggots destroying their roots. I wouldn't know of the root would be good or not when I cut into it. So this time I'm going to put a small row cover over them while they grow. I'll let them sprout first before I get it set up. I might have to go out and buy some more rebar and bricks. I use them to hold down the edge of the covers and I'm currently using all of it. I have just enough to hold down four row covers. Five was not in the plan.
