Spring in My Office!

The seeds I planted last Wednesday are up and growing…at least partially. The cabbage looks good. The lettuce…well…we’ll give it a few more days.

I was so desperate for spring that I had to check them constantly and take pictures.

If you look close, you can see the radicle on the cabbage seed just poking out. This is 1 day after planting!

Day 2…You can see the root hairs!

The Napa Cabbage, ‘Blues’ Hybrid, is looking great. Behind it…the lettuce…not so much. There are only 4 or 5 measly seedlings. I hope more start growing! Otherwise, the moral of the story will be that Jiffy pellets work okay for cabbage but not for lettuce!
