I am trying to use this blog as more of a record or diary of what's happening here at the garden farm and less of a record of the meanderings of my mind. This might be of interest to friends, family, farm members and fellow tiny farm farmers. I hope so. If not, feel free to move on to something else.
Today I decided to plant some kale and collards for the greenhouse, in case the soil is too cold out there for seeds to germinate soon. Tomorrow I will plant some in the greenhouse itself as well and see how the two ways work out.
I also figured out that for some items it makes sense to plant one per half share and per mini share plus one for me. That works out to 16 plants of whatever it is, like head lettuce for instance. I will continue to think about this. For instance, how many kale plants should I plant for each half share in order to have enough???
Of course after I decided to plant in units of 16, I found that my starter pots fit in the flats in groups of 12. Hmmph.
Today's planting - 12 each:
Kale - White Russian and Winter Red
Collards - Champion
Tainong Heading Mustard
(This is part of my ongoing campaign to successfully grow some of this heading mustard. I decided to plant some frequently and see what works out the best. It sure looks nice in the Baker Creek catalog.)
Germinating onions almost too small to see:
