* 2nd batch of starts

Posted on April 19th, 2011 by maitreya. Filed under Home and Garden.

I’m home sick today and took advantage of the beautiful weather and a theraflu-induced energy spurt to plant my starts outside (all except the tomatoes).  They mostly look pretty strong, so I’m hoping they’ll make it.  Since some of the cardboard is already starting to break down, planting the whole thing should be much more successful than last year’s disaster.  I’ve also been putting them outside on nice days to harden off a bit.  My direct sown seeds from a couple weekends ago also have started sprouting, so I’ll get plants one way or another.

That freed up room for new starts: squashes (pattypan, yellow, zucchini, spaghetti, and sweet dumpling), cucumbers (lemon, Armenian, and a “Pickalot” hybrid), pumpkins (Jack o’lantern, Jack be little, rouge vif d’etampes, and sigar & pie), basil, and peppers (should have started these earlier, but I forgot).  That’s going to be a lot of plants.  Hmm.

  • This recipe with white beans is probably my favorite farro salad yet. The creamy beans play a huge role in that, along with the sweet tender leeks and fresh parsley. But it's the chunks of salty, citrusy preserved lemon, a condiment often used in Moroccan cooking, that really takes this salad to the next level.
