I never remember to write things down OR I lose my journal. Maybe by keeping it online I won’t lose track!

March 21st

started:

  • one tray of nasturtium
  • 12 broccoli,
  • 12 neon glow chard,
  • 12 ruby red chard,
  • 12 arugula,
  • 12 New Zealand spinach
  • 12 Gold Nugget tomato (cherry; determinate)
  • 6 Sweetie tomato (cherry; indeterminate)

Lots of extra tomato plants were started for students in the gardening class. Indeterminate varieties have more flexible stems so need to be staked; this type is better suited to growing upside down in Topsy Turvy type containers.
