What's Growing: Spinach, Beets, Radishes and More
I saw on one of the videos above that one way to start beet and spinach seedlings is just to fill a flat tray with soil. I did that. The spinach caught up with my ground planted spinach and the beets have grown past my ground planted beets. They had a 10 day start in the ground too! I am assuming the trays heat up nicely on the deck and that helped. The top picture is spinach and the bottom picture is beets. I will transplant them to the garden this weekend.
All my radishes came up including the 2 year old seeds. I just looked at them today and they are ready to be thinned. Here is a picture from a week ago.
These are the rows of old radish seeds. They all germinated for the most part and need to be thinned. You can see the spinach to the right of them and the beets to the left. The ones in the above trays are larger. Even the carrots are up far left.
Pictures of my transplants. There is kohlrabi, chard, Chinese cabbage, kale, lettuce and something called Chinese broccoli.
