It's Monday, which means it's time for another installment of Radical Homemaking. This weekend, I transferred my seedlings, which were planted the last week in December, into the raised bed! Everything was a little root bound, so I probably should have transferred them last week. I'm keeping a little harvest journal to refer to next year when I try this again. Here's my veggie patch roll call:

I'm excited to see that my compost pile, which I started in September, is beginning to turn and change shape. It's working, it's working! Hopefully I'll have a lovely pile of summer compost made from our kitchen scraps, household and garden waste. Next week, I'll share some photos of my raised beds with winter veggies in their infancy.
