A couple of rookie mistakes in the garden
You would think I would know better.
When I broadcast the seeds for my mixed greens (left photo), the shoots came up so concentrated that I'm going to have a hard time thinning them. I should have mixed sand in with the seed which lets you broadcast over a wider area.
When I planted my cabbage sets (right photo), I didn't treat them with Sevin dust and the bugs moved in pronto, as you can see.
Plant and learn.
ROAD GANG UPDATE: It took 90 gallons of asphalt sealer to complete my driveway. I had estimated it would take 60. But it's done.
