– My celeriac that I had given up on are all sprouting today. Yippee!
– Broccoli, radicchio and endive in small cells are drying out fast, looking very sad about this. I’ll start up some more in case these have a problem and will check seedlings more often, i.e. daily. Once the broccoli recovers, I’ll transplant to larger cells.
– I had way too many “Mixed Greens” come up in one pot. I thought this seed was old and dead. So I transplanted it to thin it out.
– Winterbor and Tuscan kale are not sprouting. Only the Red Russian. If I see a packet of either, I’ll pick it up.
