Remember the roots we brought in from the garden a few weeks back and planted in sand? They are going so great - it is very cool to watch. The boys think they can see the fennel growing every day!
The fennel (above) is shooting up nicely, and we should have enough to snip for salads/seasoning soon!
The purple cabbage root we planted is sprouting nice big cabbage leaves.
And the parsley - oh the parsley. It is growing so fast! We have been snipping almost daily to use in stock, soups, salads, and stir fries. And this is from a root! We've been impressed at how much is growing in such a short time from roots we dug up out of our garden only a few weeks ago.
All of our seedlings are doing great - the mustard greens and lettuce mix are the biggest so far and the tomato seedlings are looking good. The boys helped transplant a bunch of the plants into a larger open tray, and have been tracking the plants.
It has been an interesting project so far and we look forward to reaping the results!
