I already had a sprinkler set up at the fence to cover the newly seeded areas, so Mr. Granny went out and turned on the faucet to check the pressure. The water had been on for about 3 days, but it takes a while to build up enough pressure to begin actually using it. I was soooooo happy when I saw that Rainbird sprinkler doing its job!
As I looked at it, I thought I detected a double row of green at the end of the kennel garden. Could that be my sugar snap peas? I was out there two days ago, and there was no sign of any germination. I grabbed the camera and went out to get a picture, and sure enough....both rows of peas are up! Germination looked to be excellent, but I was standing in the spray of the sprinkler, and couldn't get any closer without getting drowned.
L to R: Garlic, radishes, Chantenay carrots, Danvers carrots, sugar snap peas, more radishes.
The small lettuce bed, under bird protection, is beginning to show some real growth. Front to back, 9 each Little Gem, Anuenue and Yugoslavian Red lettuce. Six Winter Density, 9 Sierra and 9 Jericho lettuce plants are in the kennel garden, under the netting. That, along with the spinach that has also been planted, should be giving us some nice salads soon.
