uhhh...can you guess which one is in the good stuff? *sigh*
Well we learn so much each year I don't thing we will ever "know everything". I think that is a good thing...at least it will keep us busy! Like I have already learned that starting lettuce indoors is not worth the trouble. The stuff I direct seeded is bigger then the stuff I started inside a monthe earlier! Now the Kale I started indoors has done really well and is about double the size of the stuff I direct seeded. So is the Swiss Chard. I have also learned that seed companies use pretty generic planting instructions for the most part. The sunflower seed packet says to wait until after all danger of frost to plant. Well I started some inside and have been taking them outside during the day. I have left them out all night and it has frosted 3 times and they are fine...
They seem to be doing fine.
I looked up some info and found that you can plant them earlier. As long as they have not flowered yet and do not have a blossom they can stand temperatures all the way to 26 degrees at night. I will be starting them outside earlier next year for sure. Well our first market is this Saturday so I better stop writting and get some stuff done!
