Planting for Transplants

Our Planting Seeds for Transplants has now moved into full swing for Garden Season 2010. Richard has mixed up Soil from Aged Cow Compost, Peat, a bit of Garden Soil (we would like to had more but it is covered and frozen), Leaves and Crushed Egg Shells. We have a tub of it in the Living Room all set for the next project. Those next projects are coming faster and faster, it seems.

We are using the Stella Natura 2010 Kimberton Hills Biodynamic Agricultural Planting Guide & Calendar. This Calendar considers working with Cosmic Rhythms as a basic for planting. Intuitively, this just seems right. Bit by bit, we are learning more and more about this. And we are intrigued. So far we have planted the following:

February 4 (Root): Onions, Leeks, Celeriac
February 8 (Leaf): Celery, Lovage
February 11 (Fruit): Eggplant
February 12 (Flower): Broccoli
February 15 (Flower): Lavender, Columbine, Dianthus, Petunias, Pansies, Dame's Rocket
