In the raised bed the free lettuce seeds I planted have come up and look really good. For such a small amount of seed, they did well. I also see some peas coming up but no kale. I have not ever had much luck sowing kale seed right in the ground anyway. Mine seem to do better if I start them in pots. Oh well, we'll see.
At work yesterday one of our parents brought in two big mums and our unit director gave them to me. I am quite pleased as I would never pay what they want for them in the stores.I planted them in the front flower garden.
However, I did buy these little ones for $.50 each and planted them in this planter behind the mailbox.
