Early Sprouts

28 Feb

Its been less than one week since we planted seedlings on February 23rd, and we’re already seeing a lot of green  Ansley and Warner’s tray is booming! “We have sprouts in each of our 16 cells in our sub-irrigated flat — flowers (new zinnias and old asters), heirloom tomatoes, yellow and tricolor cherry tomatoes, basil, cucumbers!  The cucumbers are already looking leggy, they’re so big.”  Over at Casa Maher-Dolan, we’ve got a whole lotta nothin in our tray, but growth in our sub-irrigated tomato and cucumber plants.  How about everyone else?  I’m thinking I may re-plant some herbs this weekend.  -Denise
