Notes

These are in peat pots for now; will be moved to one of the plots if they actually sprout. (This is my first time with beets, I have no idea what will happen.)

All transplanted to the bed by the fence! All but two of the seeds came up - many with more than one plant.

Thinned in late May; and by 'thinned' I mean 'did not have the heart to kill seedlings I had nursed from earliest childhood; attempted to transplant instead'. There are now 20 in this bed, from the original 13; the transplantees are alive but not thriving.
