Garden update: Feb 11

The radishes have sprouted! Granted, this happens every year, five to ten days after I plant the radish seeds, but it still delights me.

It took this batch nine days, which is longer than I expected, but it is only February and the weather's been on the cool side. (In this area, that means mid-fifties daytime, forties nighttime). By the time you get around to planting yours, it will probably be warmer, and you'll have radishes popping up in a mere four or five days.

The pokey green things are grass. See my previous comment about not putting seedy hay in your compost pile unless it gets hot enough to kill the goddamn things.
