Winter Garden

The garden is mostly bare at the moment.  There is some lettuce, and herbs left from last year, but the recent Ice Storm has taken out every thing else, except the typical Winter weeds.  So, its time to start the spring vegetables.  The recent rain has made the soil pretty soggy, and this is good for starting seeds.
Winter vegetables that will do well in late Winter, early spring are the Cruciferous Vegetables such as Cabbage, Broccoli, Kale, Carrots, Radishes, and oily herbs like Cilantro, and Parsley.
I'm not going to Till the garden at this point.  Rather I am going to rough up the soil with the Action Hoe, and pull out the weeds, then sprinkle the seed on the ground, and then smooth the soil out with the Hard Rake.
It doesn't look like I have done much here, but in a few weeks there will be sprouts amongous.  I overseeded the area, and when it comes time to thin out the growing space I will have lots of microgreens...
