Time to start thinking about planting some seeds. Peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, squash...

I want to get an early start on the garden this year.

Yeah we got to get our seed order in ASAP. It's finally starting to rain here in northern california. looks like it's going to be a dry year though. Artichokes are starting to grow a little faster and the greens loved the rain we got this week. broccoli is getting a'head' of itself so I had to harvest a handful of tiny broccles which were delicious right off the plant. lots of side shoots starting though so I have hope for that. This winter gardening thing is wild. confuses my New England sensibilities.

Very cool.  Are you using a greenhouse?

no that's whats so weird about it. just planted starts of broccoli, brussel sprouts, kale and seeds for mixed mustard greens back in october. It got down below 20 on a couple nights this month so we had to cover the plants but other than that it has been all good.

Wow.   8).

But I guess that is some cold hardy stuff. And you call that northern California? ;)

I have been reading Eliot Colman's second book, and with all the seed catalogs arriving, I am starting to itch.
Guess I will go home and toss some compost.

A lot of the greens survive cold weather. I have had collards survive cold down in the teens. A lot of folks plant them in September and eat off of them all year. That's why dried beans and greens are traditional New Years Day. That's all you had.
