This year I'm starting Swiss chard in small pots - they've just sprouted and are sitting in a sunny window, and mid-March I'll transplant one seedling per 2 gallon pot outside to my cold frame. This is a veg that takes off here in The Netherlands. When the plants go outside I'll post a photo.

Parsley and basil are out as well as two or three tomato plants. I'll decide what else to put out. The temperatures were very high today. Water, water, water.

We're getting about two meals a week now. I started 2 more pots this size with 4 seeds each about 2 weeks ago. They should be big enough in 2 months. :)
