I set out my Mason bees today. I put the tubes of bees in a box, with a small hole in it, so they can escape, but won't nest in those tubes again. The lady at Knox Cellars said to put them out when the temperature is reliably above 50 degrees during the week, and it looks like this is the week!!!!

My seedlings are doing quite well. Since it finally warmed up, I decided to plant out the Kale and Broccoli today. They've been out hardening off for a couple of hours each day for several days, so I expect they'll be fine.

Arugula, scallions, cranberries, and sweet alyssum are working well.

My onions have gotten floppy, though - I'm not sure if I should trim them or not.

And finally, my bokashi composter arrived this weekend. I've finally started loading it up! I'll let you know how it goes.

All in all, a good weekend for gardening!

I always trim my onions when they are inside. I planted them out a couple of days ago. My brassicas are outside hardening off, but they are too tiny to plant yet. I need to keep them a couple of more weeks in their tunnel. Ok maybe that isn't hardening off that is just growing them outside.

Your seedlings are looking good. If the warmer weather holds up I'll be so happy.

I'd be curious to know how the broccoli and kale will do planted out. We've had some pretty warm days, except today. Your broccoli is farther along than mine.
I look forward to seeing what happens with those bees.
