Get Your Vitamin D!

It is so beautiful outside this afternoon, that you all should head outside to enjoy the sun and stock up on some Vitamin D! I have one lonely tray of Bok Choy seedlings that I’m growing under lights for a presentation I’m giving next weekend, and they are looking sadly leggy, despite being under lights 24/7. Since it is well above freezing this afternoon, I took them out to the Demo Garden to get some real sun!

You can tell the poor things have been stretching for sunlight! I have 4 types of bok choy planted: Joi Choi, Bonsai, Red Choi, and Mei Qing Choi. I’m giving a 30 minute presentation on growing and selling Bok Choy and the Kansas Farmers Market Conference (www.ksfarmersmarkets.org), so I thought it would be nice to have some samples on hand for everyone to taste. they should be nice and tender little plants by next weekend.

  1. Farmers market conference?!

    Dang, I have got to figure out how to get to that Monday session. That’d mean spending the night or leaving at crazy-o’clock in the morning, though. Rats.
