Just a quick post today, to show off the most recent arrivals. Today brought a Mexico midget tomato sprout, and yesterday brought the herb sprouts (rows from top to bottom: Genovese basil, lemon mint, lime basil). The herbs doubled in size over the course of my workday today. Two herb peats have no-shows, and I’ll replant those Friday if they haven’t arrived by then.
Mexico midget is an indeterminate cherry variety. “Indeterminate” means that it’s a vine type that grows continuously and produces fruit over the course of a season, as opposed to the “determinate” bush varieties that grow to a pre-determined size and set their fruit all at once. Indeterminates are good for fresh eating all summer and need trellised to support their long vines, while determinates are good for canning and freezing, because the whole crop is usually ready at one time, making for more efficient processing.
