I don’t know how anything can grow in this blue light of the fluorescents, but it does
I confess I love the sprouting enthusiasm of the brassica family, don’t you? It’s something I need to learn every year: that the cole family with their cute little round brown seeds are ALL FABULOUS SPROUTERS, and I needn’t sow them as heavily as other families. Indeed, I should really wise up and learn that one seed = one plant with them.
Oh well. Live and learn, and relive what you learned before. Relive and relearn?
Again, though, with the school garden as my excuse, I am able to use up all these pretty little things, and that makes me quite happy. These are sowings of Aichi cabbage (napa-type), mibuna, pak choy, gai choi and chrysanthemum greens, most destined for the children. They’ll get bigger, get transplanted to the greenhouse this weekend, then out to the gardens in 2 weeks.
