I did a stupid thing...

When I sowed my Radishes and Carrots…I accidentally labelled both as ‘Radish’. Now one of them has come up but I’m not sure which lol. I think it has to be the radish because it’s usually a quick germinater while the carrots take a couple of weeks. Once the true leaves form it’ll become clear.
I bought 4 elephant garlic cloves, which I plan to to plant in one sq ft segment. Last year I grew ordinary garlic, which grew well, considering that I planted it in September or October instead of June. This year I will plant the larger variety at the proper time, and should hopefully get a good yield.
Strawberry plants are starting to come into the stores, and I’m thinking I’ll get 3 or 4 and cover a couple of squares. That will leave 2 squares to start late-winter sows, and the carrots and radishes are short crops so those squares will also be available for late winter/early spring, or I could resow a new batch of the same vegetables.
I’ve been given a pot with pizza thyme, rosemary and oregano.The rosemary will undoubtedly need potted up at some point, but i’ll try to keep it small as space is limited.
