Spring Planting

I hadn't planned on these little seedlings getting big enough to plant just yet.  I only started them 4 weeks ago.  But it's a beautiful day outside, I happened to pick up some manure and compost yesterday, so I figured it was a good day to plant.

I'm giving broccoli and cabbage a try along the fence line.  I haven't attempted veggies there, thinking they wouldn't get enough sun.  But the herbs and flowers I planted there last summer grew fine.  I'm hoping that the afternoon shade will protect these cool season crops from bolting on a warmer day.  We'll see.

These broccoli are going in my triangle bed and will be replaced by peas later in the season.
