On 16Feb11, Mark observed that the carrots in bed A4, had germinated. Germination took 18 days. Mark completed the thinning of lettuce in bed E1, and did some weeding in that bed. The recent rains had exposed one of the potato tubers in bed CDE3, and that tuber had a lot of green growth on it. That tuber was re-buried. None of the potatoes have broken through yet.
