Took these pictures in the greenhouse today after transplanting a bunch of lettuces from cardboard "flats" to paper pots - they were getting too crowded. A bunch is already transplanted in the garden. Some of these are just gorgeous - especially those that got planted outside a few weeks ago - brilliant reds, speckled and spotted leaves... such eye candy!You can also see some cherry tomatoes poking their noses up despite it being relatively cold still... I'm planning to plant those in pots in greenhouse - to add a few handfuls to salads.
This is called "Violetta Pak Choi" - you can tell I am especially drawn to red/purple varieties of almost any leafy plant - they just make me smile:) I also have two varieties of red okra this year that I hope to plant SOMEWHERE...
This particular Pak Choi has been growing well so far - better than some other varieties I have tried to grow before. I still have a LOT of paper pots to make and a LOT of transplanting to do - and a LOT of bed building so that eventually there is somewhere to transplant all those beautiful plants.
I also bought 2 different black tomato plant seeds, 2 yellow tomato seeds, 3 different eggplant seeds on top of all the great seeds that Tom gave me and what I still have from previous years. It's amazing how long some seeds stay viable!
Well, that's it for today!
