The daikon (pictured), turnips and burdock seeds are all up in the beds. I was worried about there not being enough warmth to sprout these seeds in the ground but my fears have been allayed. Is there anything better than seeing seed leaves poke through the soil’s surface and open their faces to the sun? Not many things top that for me . . .

The leafy greens and onions are waiting to be transplanted. More on them later . . .
