Since the bees didn't come on Thursday I had time to get the rest of our the seeds for Spring in. I planted all the lettuces 10 different varieties, parsnips, 3 types of carrots, 3 varieties of radish, cilantro, and dill. I used the dial seed sower for the first time. It took a bit of practice to get used to how to lightly tap it so that too many seeds don't come out. But once I got the hang of it the seed sower does help to space out tiny seeds of carrots and lettuce more efficiently than sowing by hand.
I covered all the rows of seeds with an organic soil that I bought from the store. My soil forms a crust after it rains which makes it difficult for seedlings to break through. The soil that I bought is loose and crumbly and perfect for the seedlings. Eventually it will get mixed into the rest of the soil.
On the left are the three varieties of radish (purple plum, cherry belle, french breakfast) and carrots (half long danvers, red cored chatenay, cosmic purple) closely together. Radish grow very quickly and will get pulled about the time that the carrots are needing more space.
