I took full advantage, now that my brood is back to health. The Cascadia sugar snap peas were planted along the fence. In the lettuce box I planted Winter Density lettuce and Winter mix lettuce with some Bright Lights swiss chard as well. There will be salads galore.
In one of my new beds, I planted Detroit Dark Red beets and Nantes carrots.
The carrots were seeded with this seed tape. I tried making my own seed tapes last year with miserable results. I wanted to try again with less work involved. There is a discount store near me that sells these for 40% off, so I gave them a try. They are certainly easy to work with. If they work out, I'll make some up with toilet paper this year. Last year I used napkins and seeds that were of questionable age, so it was my own fault that I had a failure.
We'll be getting more rain early next week, so I won't have to water these in. The soil is still quite damp, but not soggy. It's amazing, I was actually feeling a bit blah until I went out and played in the dirt.
The chickens are liking it too.
