We’re seeing a few signs of spring around Bass River this week.

Time to Weed and Plant Some Basil!

image

Today when we took the cover off of our cold frame we found lettuce, spinach, chamomile and lots of weeds!

image

John, Scott and Jay took the weeds out.

image

We started this basil downstairs under our lights a few weeks ago.

image

We thought we’d plant some of it under the cold frame to see if it will stay warm enough to grow.

image

We planted it where most of the weeds had been.

image

Then we watered it and put the cover back on.

Maybe we’ll make some pesto soon?

Today we’re enjoying the first day of spring up on our rooftop garden.

We saw lots of signs of spring!

Under the cold frame we found lettuce and spinach that we planted in the fall.

Happy Spring!
