I am fascinated by these tiny seeds—kale (bottom) and beets (right). Life and goodness from such tiny seeds.
A couple of weeks ago John and I planted a few cool weather seeds in our community garden plot. Before planting, I took the time to soak the seeds overnight in liquid seaweed. This trick allows for better germination. Sorta like soaking beans overnight before you cook them. (I use Maxicrop Liquid Seaweed which I buy at Redenta’s Garden.)
We enhanced our soil and added cow manure before we did anything. Then we planted some of our seeds and saved a few for later. My plan is to succession plant so that my harvest will be staggered. I also set out onion slips.
Now we wait.
