Rain Barrel info

I ordered a rain barrel from The Great American Rain Barrel company through the community program in Essex.  They are having another one in Newburyport in June, and I wanted to share the info.

The rain barrel is REALLY nice and very high quality for the money!  I am excited to get mine set up, and to start collecting rain to water my garden!

unknown seedlings

Can anyone identify these seedlings?  I'm thinking peppers...I misplaced them on my chart, and now I'm not sure what they are (rookie move).  I started kale, swiss chard, cilantro, peppers and tomatoes at the same time.  My guess are peppers.  Do you have a guess?  Please share!  Thanks

Pallet Salad Garden

I made a new garden bed this year.  It is a salad garden made from a recycled pallet.  I stapled landscapers fabric to the bottom, and up around the sides and filled it with compost.  I sprinkled various lettuce seeds into the rows, and I am already starting to see green!   First picture 5/3/13 
Second picture 5/30/13.  I've already harvested 2 whole rows of lettuce, and planted spinach in its place!
