Planting the Cabbage

Today I planted our cabbage in our first raised bed.


It was windy and chilly so Ray put a makeshift coldframe together over the bed. Even though cabbage is a cold hardy veggie, we want to be sure of them surviving the cold and the wind.


I planted the starts on the NW corner of the bed so they would get maximum sun exposure.

I also made little mini rivers, or swales,  on contour above the plants so that when I water them, it will soak into the roots and not erode the soil.


Tomorrow, I will direct sow kale, black seeded simpson, garlic, Shallot, onion, spinach and radish. I will also plant the celery I started from my kitchen scraps.
