All Covered And Ready To Sprout

Today we planted leeks, broccoli, brussels sprouts (yeah I thought it was brussel sprouts too until I looked at the seed package), cauliflower, Napa cabbage, and kale.   Those were planted in the covered bed. The cover lets in light and air but hopefully keeps out squirrels, birds, and deer.  We can just flip back the front section to water.  The cover should also help speed along the germination process.
In separate containers we planted Yukon Gem potatoes, iron lady tomatoes, and jalapeno peppers.  They are on their own meaning we didn't cover them.
Frankly I figure that if a squirrel bites into a jalapeno it should learn to stay away.  Does that seem harsh?  Gardening is serious business.
Oh yeah, and yesterday we planted a McIntosh apple tree.  It's not in this garden area.
More to come.
