Finally, the fruits of our winter sow made it into the ground. We first spent some time weeding the area we had prepared last fall. Then, on 9/30, we set up a grid using wood, inspired by a trip to the Chelmsford Pollination Preservation Garden. Each plant species was planted in a 3'x3' square, although we expanded the area for some plants so we could have even more - those plants were in 3'x6' rectangles. 
We used a flag system to mark where each plant was to go, each plant species was identified by a different number, so when the plants grow in the spring, we will know whether it's a weed or the plant we want!
We ended up with some different plants that we had originally planned but we had 16 different varieties available to plant. Not a bad start!
Once all the plants were in the ground, we mulched the area with salt-marsh hay. Two weeks later, the plants seem to be happy in their new environment! Now to see what winter will bring!
