About two weeks ago, on a day that spoke of spring already, I decided to put the first seeds out. As my balcony is facing south, you can add one month to get the optimal date for seeding and planting. Of course we could still get bad frost and all my efforts would have been in vane, but I’m an optimist. 😉 I cleared some flower pots and sew various kinds of lettuce, radices, Asia salads, and spinach.

The weather gods had mercy on me; it didn’t get too cold anymore. So today I found the first tiny seedlings peeking out of the dirt!
