Yesterday I seeded two flats of heirloom seed: Purple Top White Globe Turnip and Calabrese Broccoli. It's a little late to be planting these wintery greens, especially from seed. In fact, yesterday at the Santa Cruz farmers' market I filled my bag with turnips and broccoli - a sure sign that I should have been seeding a month and a half ago!
But, while we're in the midst of this interim limbo between winter and spring, I'm going to give these seeds a shot. As soon as the weather warms they'll bolt (or turn to seed) and taste awful. But, if luck goes my way, they'll grow into modestly small tubers and heads and we'll get to enjoy a few more cold weather dishes before launching headfirst into tomatoes, eggplants and melons!
