Yesterday Will filled the new raised bed with soil and I planted some things!
I ended up buying all my seeds from jungs (rather than seed savers).


Things planted OUTdoors (4/27):
Side of the house: Lilly Bulbs
Old bed: 1 row onions, 1 row buttercrunch lettuce (for BLT's), 1/2 row radishes, 1/2 row beets, 1 row bok choi
In a pot: radishes and swiss chard

Seeds started (4/27):
Moon flowers, bell peppers, sweet pimento peppers. I have my doubts the peppers will get big enough to produce much.

Seeds Started (4/20):
Zuchinni, american cukes, asian cukes, tomatillos, morning glories, 4 o'clocks, calendula, chinese lantern, chrysanthemum. Everything has sprouted except the chinese lanterns and chrysanthemums

ETA: someone seems to be digging at my bulbs and seeds...damn squirrels.. HOW DO THEY KNOW?!!L:@J!(!*@(*!&@!(@&*

On the squirrels.... they seem to notice whenever the soil is disturbed (ie planting bulbs and seeds). Could try covering newly planted bulbs with a rough mulch to disguise soil disturbance. Um, with the seeds, maybe some mesh screen on the soil surface until seeds germinate to discourage digging? It is so frustrating to have seeds and bulbs dug up and eaten! Good luck!
