Playing in the dirt.

More Sprouts

There are a few more sprouts tonight.  A second cucumber (the first really was a cucumber), a third spinach, a couple more radishes and half a dozen more beets have come up.  The beets will need to be thinned a bit, since it appears I dropped two or three seeds into a couple of holes, but it’s still not the tedious task that is row planting or scatter planting.

I’m a cucumber!

I also found my first lettuce sprout this evening, one of the Forellenschluss.

Baby lettuce!

The $300 turnip did not make it.  [Moment of silence.]  But a second turnip has sprouted, so there is yet hope for tasty homegrown turnips!

  1. I’m so glad you’ve had more sprouts come up! In my experience they almost always take longer than the package says they will, especially outside. 🙂

  2. But I want my instant gratification now! 😀 Lazy seeds.
