As the snow flies outside I am hoping that spring will get here before my seedlings get too root bound. It seemed like things were going to get an early start this year and so I planted the cold hardiest among my seeds March 13th. I love to see Thomas Jefferson's "Tennis Ball" lettuce next to Johnny's Seed's "Cherokee".
Here the raddichio "Perseo" promises to be a nice round head in late summer. These greens are some of my favorite salad additions for bitter flavor and long refrigerator life. Tatsoi is also a great keeper in the refrigerator, lasting three weeks.

It is so easy to start seeds indoors with just a simple set up. A couple of work lights from a hardware store over an old piece of plywood on some saw horses works just fine. Something to consider while the weather takes its time warming up. Come on spring!!
You may be harvesting lettuce indoors. :-)ReplyDelete
