Do I have seedophobia?
So here is the I can't believe it honestly grows from a seed lettuce. I bought the cos variety because from memory I just picked leaves as I needed them from the plants last year. Actually now that I have gone on and on like a pork chop about the seeds, I can't believe that I didn't buy them out of curiosity. I really do want to see how a lettuce grows now.
I did manage to push through the guilt of my seedling purchases though, and the boys and I had lots of fun out in the wind planting today. It wasn't the greatest day for it, but it was warm wind which helped. The only problem was with the mulching, I seem to have decorated the neighbours lawn with it instead of my garden, so What I Have Learnt Today, is that mulch and wind don't mix.
A bit less exciting, this is squash. I've had lots of success with pumpkin, so I thought I'd give squash a go.
This is mint. I didn't actually check which kind, I just smelt it and it smelt like mint, the sign on it said mint, so hopefully it is mint. I have a feeling it's Vietnamese Mint, but I don't really have any basis for that thought.
And last but not least, this is beetroot. I've got high hopes for this beetroot, the lady at the nursery told me that you can eat the leaves of it too, I actually didn't know that. I love beetroot on a hamburger, and a few people I know have really talked up roast beetroot, so I'm keen to try that out too.
So that's it for today. The excitement never stops.
