planted out

25 Mar 2009
Sunny 12°C / 54°F

After a run-in with a few bees, who mostly just wanted to sit on me and show off, I finally managed to get my lettuce seedlings planted. I made my partner come outside with me and make sure there weren’t bees on me when I went back in. Some of the lettuce seedlings are still inside on the back porch because I didn’t have space for all of them outside. Well, I sort of do, but mostly I have plants for the remaining space. I’m not sure how lettuce will take to being planted out this early, but I think they’re well hardened off and I think they’ll be happier where they’ll get more light. They’ve got both bottle cloches and row cover, so they should be able to stay warm enough.

I also put Low the Owl back outside, so he can shake his bobbly head at anyone who wants to try their hand at garlic munching.

And I took a picture of my hopefully spinach seedlings, or whatever it is that’s coming up where I planted spinach.

Yeah, well the fuzzy bees will keep it warm. They’re like tiny little teddy bears for lettuce.

You have bees! That is a true sign of spring. We have not seen any yet. They like to sit on me as well, which I have no problem with.

That owl is great. Makes me think I should go with my plan of using the 4-foot tall Bugs Bunny coat rack as a scarecrow. It used to scare the kids sh*tless, ought to work for critters!
