Early Seeding

Radish SeededLast weekend was a busy one. Radishes, pepper cress, speckled lettuce, Swiss chard, and mixed lettuce will, we hope, make POD’s front stoop glow green in a few weeks.

It’s only been a week, but already last year’s seeds are showing signs of life. Here’s hoping this week’s overnight lows don’t put too much of a damper on things.radish seedlings

Planted about a month ago, these French Breakfast radishes survived squirrel rape and pillage (which surely stunted the poor buggers as they had to be more or less transplanted entirely), a below-freezing snap, and a near-90 degree weekend.

Ah, Philly spring.
