Today we direct seeded 6 types of carrots and 3 types of beets into a garden bed (each type has its own, labeled section).  Luckily, since these are root crops, we do not have to cover the bed with plastic.  Of course, now that the weather is warmer, we have to remember to take the plastic covering off the other beds if the day gets above about 50 degrees.  This is because if the temperature gets too high, the lettuce can roast underneath the plastic.  Inside, more tomatoes were planted.  We also managed to till some of the other beds and bury the winter rye growing in the beds.  This weed, when buried, will decompose and provide nourishment for future crops.  All is well!
