Greenhouse Seedlings!!

On November 9th we had a very successful session planting seeds in the greenhouse. A big thanks to those who came out to help! 🙂
Counting all the seeds we planted would have taken a long time so we counted everything by whole tray and by each little compartment (‘singles’) of the seedlings six-trays. Here is what we planted:
  • Red Oak Leaf Lettuce: 1 tray
  • Vivian Romaine Lettuce: 1 tray
  • Red Salad Bowl Lettuce: 2 trays
  • Paris Island Cos Romaine Lettuce: 1 tray
  • Romaine Lettuce: 1 tray
  • Arugala: 90 singles and 1 tray
  • Chioggia Beet: 12 pots
  • Tendergreen Mustard: 90 singles
  • Ruby Red Swiss Chard: 135 singles
  • Cilantro: 45 singles
  • Flamingo Swiss Chard: 234 singles
  • Cabbage Baby Pak Choi: 36 singles
  • Broccoli Raab Rapini: 270 singles
  • Red Russian Kale: 144 singles
  • Hon Tsai Tai: 72 singles
  • Thyme: 12 singles
  • Little Finger Carrot: 17 pots

So a lot of seeds!

We hope we will get produce from these, but the thing to remember is that they are experimental, to see if we can effectively use the greenhouse to grow vegetables over the winter. 
The singles are the small square compartment trays; some have one seed, but some seeds were too small to separate.

  1. It's very exciting to get all the seedlings planted and to think about all of the potential great meals the veggies and herbs will turn into once harvested. I would recommend checking out propagation mats or some other greenhouse supplies that will get those seeds growing quick.
