First direct seeding 2009

Despite “flood warning” rains over the past few days and thanks to the wonders of the natural drainage in raised beds, I was able to put in some Arugula and some radish seeds today. You can see that i just scratched up the soil lightly, sprinkled the seeds on t wide rows and then pressed them in with the back of my “claw” tool.

I’ll cover the bed in plastic for a while and then switch to floating row cover to thwart the local rabbit in my yard. Spring has officially begun!
