Basil, Lettuce, Kohlrabi & Spring Onions


I continue to sow more seeds. The basil and spring onions I put straight in the ground about 5 weeks ago haven’t sprouted. The lettuce that I’ve been eating for weeks is on its last legs and its replacement that I planted out a couple of weeks ago looks insufficient to keep us in salads. Finally, the kohlrabi that never was abundant anyway needs replacing. So it’s back to the seed packs for me.

I started about a week ago by sowing a tray of basil and lettuce (long green pot in the back). I followed it up yesterday with a tray of kohlrabi and spring onions.

The weather has been perfect for seed sprouting – sunny and warm. I’ve kept everything moist and I’m hoping these seeds will form a nice part of my summer crop.

    Oh what a time, waiting for those seeds to do the bloody right thing and germinate!

    It looks like the heat is finally beginning to break here, so I just sowed in some carrot and lettuce seeds. Hoping for a nice fall crop since our seasons went from winter to summer and pretty much skipped spring. Hoping everything turns out well since I planted them together in a giant pot.
