Here at the Urban Farm we are just beginning to get ready for the upcoming season. We have been going through field trip requests and starting to fill out our schedule for the spring and summer. But maybe most excitedly some of the earliest seeds are just starting to germinate. Under the soft glow of a grow light beets and lettuce have already started to germinate. We have three varieties of beets and two of lettuce that have just broken free of their seed cases and are reaching for the life. We’ll keep them protected until the ground is warm enough for them to go outside. But if the weather stays sunny the cold frames will be nice and toasty! It is incredibly heartening to see another season on new life break through the soil surface. Here’s to a good season in 2013.
