Two weeks on and the seedlings have sprouted. Obviously a couple of the kale and tomato seeds weren’t viable, but everything else has come on. I thought that the celery seeds were useless, but decided to give them another week. This morning I saw:
I’m going to have to plant some more, but at least I should get something!
I used paper labels on all those seeds I planted, which has now alerted me to something. I think a slug or snail has found its devilish way in there.
Snail pellets will be popped in at the bottom and up the top before I go to bed tonight.
Just on the other side of the gate is a clump of predominately wicking boxes, which so far seem to be chugging along nicely. Parsley, spring onions, rhubarb, garlic, rosemary, silver beet and saffron bulbs are growing here on the north side of the house in a sunny corner.
Tomorrow…. growing mint in wicking boxes.
