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.

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.
