What a busy ten days! I’ve been running from project to project and it seems a bit overwhelming, especially with spring just around the corner. I have so much to write about and no time.
Possible treats in mind for future Blogs:
My first time at the African Violet Club left me with a lot of information to digest. And of course, I want to pass it on to you!
The news about eggs and cholesterol, combined with some new research with coffee left me wondering whether to start a new category about “Food.” Is that a topic that will interest readers? Let me know.
But for now, the quick and dirty update on my seedlings.
Amazingly, my green leaf lettuce plants have green lettuce leaves!!
These are miniature green cabbage seedlings that I’ve just now taken out of pods. They look a bit leggy so I’ve turned on the fan to give them that Kansas wind effect.
What about black leaf lettuce? This is a variety – maybe new – called Blackhawk MT0. I hope it grows!
Seedlings for me seem to do best in peat pots filled with potting soil that includes a wetting agent, bottom watered with chamomile tea and every third watering, a bit of fish emulsion. So far so good!
The week after next, I’m sowing spinach seeds outdoors and hoping for some fresh veggies in early May!
