The power of the quinoa is in the hills, at least around our parts where we need a slightly cooler nighttime temperature in order for the Andean plants to set seed. And so, on a mildly rainy day last week we disappeared into the coast range and planted the quinoa starts at Frank’s house.
We also found some space for the last of our radishes, which were quite happy to join the quinoa outside.
At the moment, we have completed transplanting out all of this year’s lettuce, our greenhouse full of plants has dwindled to a few stragglers here and there, and we are beginning to weed what we planted a month ago. Overwintered kale and mustard is beginning to set seed and others are in full bloom. Everything is poised to jump up very soon!
