Finally, finally, finally I found the time to shove some seeds in the seed trays and get a start on the winter crop. Actually it was Miss Four’s idea, I think my indoctrination into the world of home vegetable growing might be paying off.
So over the last week we have planted the following seeds:
Green sprouting broccoli
Red Russian Kale
The red cabbage, sprouting broccoli, Chinese cabbage and kale have all sprouting. I’m hoping the rest won’t be too far away, though I was a little heavy handed with the watering on the spring onions and lettuce so I’m worried I washed the seeds to the bottom of the tray. Time will tell I suspect.
I have lost more I want to plant including turnips, fennel, beetroot, purple sprouting broccoli, heading broccoli, mini cauliflower, mini cabbage, leeks and onions. But my uni course started yesterday and the reading pretty intense so I can’t promise anything. I also need more seed raising mix – don’t you hate when something simple like running out of supplies stops you doing something.
Anyway, tell me what you’ve been planting this week/month. And check out 5002m in Sydney for her selection.
