First Signs of Life
Apologies - these photos are about a week old. I should have gotten around to posting about them earlier. I've found that the best and sure fire way to start artichokes is by soaking the seeds overnight and then pre-sprouting them in a damp paper towel. Doing this saves a lot of time and aggravation in the long run.
The scallion seeds I purchased last year have remained viable. Thank goodness for small miracles.
The Regiment spinach is starting out bit spotty (any suggestion?) while the Winter Density lettuce needs to be thinned.
Also, I started most of my spring greens tonight and am hopeful (considering the wave of warmer we've experienced this week) that they will be ready to be transplanted into the hoop house by mid-March.
