The soil dries out very quickly as you can tell. We have a dehumidifier in the basement which sucks all of the moisture out. If we didn't have it, I'd be growing mushrooms as well. I just have to make sure I water everything frequently.
The cabbage and cauliflower seedlings are doing very well. They're actually looking robust which is nice for how cold it is in that basement. It gives me hope that those broccoli seedlings will toughen up as they grow.
See! Some are even starting to sport their true leaves. Just a few more short weeks and they'll be in the garden.
I'm hoping to get the additions to the beds on this weekend and fetch the compost to refill the beds. It's going to rain on Sunday, so if I'd need to get it done on Saturday if anything.
I know the added depth is going to be a huge asset when it comes to larger harvests. I don't know why I didn't just go ahead and make the beds to the depth I wanted to begin with. Hindsight and all that, I suppose.
I'll be starting some lettuce and spinach seedlings here in a week or two. The fun's really about to begin!
The morning comes early. Sweet gardening dreams.
