After all, this IS an online garden journal –
Today planted some store bought broccoli seedlings . . mine weren’t doing so well. They went into the main garden bed. Took some seeds from a little bag that says “red leaf lettuce” and planted them into a six pack. they are a different shape and type seed from those that were in a commercial (seeds of change) envelope – also planted in a six pack. and some mesclun salad greens into a planter.
The “red leaf lettuce” seeds may be rapini – a red leave turnip. Have convinced Jim to try FRESH turnips this year (if that is what I have planted). Just as everything else tastes better fresh from the garden, bet he’ll find turnips to be the same. am trying to expand our veggie diet.
Am also starting to collect the terra cotta pieces to make OLLAS for next summer growing season. Right now, the best choice seems to be those old terra cotta wine coolers!
