These are fall plantings of carrots and lettuce seeds. Both plants have small seeds so they should not be planted too deeply. I scattered them over the seed beds then sprinkled loose soil over the whole area. The window screens will let the sun and rain through and hold the seeds in place until they sprout. In the upper righthand corner is a small bed of just-planted garlic bulbs. The little group of green tomatoes are still attached to their vine, a volunteer that sprang up from a seed dropped from a tomato planted nearby last year.
