It’s quite an amazing thing to sprinkle seeds on the soil, cover them up, water, and watch then sprout and grow into edible things. I seeded radishes last week that are already up. It’s the season for direct seeding all sorts of things: peas, beets, onions, lettuce, endive, etc.
I haven’t plants my main crop peas yet, but ‘Golden Sweet’ which are a sugar snap variety have been seeded. These are one of my favorite types of edible pod peas.
Beets are another one of my favorite vegetables. I love them boiled, steamed, pickled, roasted, fried, pretty much any way you can cook them. They will be seeded a couple more times throughout the summer so I have an endless supply for the table.
What are you seeding in your edible garden this weekend?Filed under Around the Garden | Comments (3)
