Almost as soon as I planted everything on Black Friday, the weather deteriorated severely. We had several freezing nights in December, including a string of three in a row. The plants were in the baby stage and I think it stunted their growth.
They’re starting to come along a little better now, although I’m not sure the broccoli and Brussels sprouts are salvageable. I may start them over now that it’s February. The cabbage is about 2 inches high now. The carrots in the raised bed are doing great. I’ve sprinkled some Boston lettuce in there, as well as in a pot, and it seems to be okay. The spinach is at picking-size, and I’m going to have it in a salad this weekend. Yum!
I’m going to plant a spaghetti squash this weekend, and by the end of the month get a tomato or two started.
