The seeds seem to be germinating and sprouting right on schedule. And there are some new additions on the herb side of the tray: basil, thyme and dill. I’m still waiting on the lavender, oregano and parsley, but have another week or so yet to go.
The lettuce and arugula are still going strong, but I can already tell that they will be a challenge to transplant. They are pretty frail and I bet they don’t like to be mussed with. I’ll bet you dollars to doughnuts that the seeds that I sow directly into the beds will mature as quickly as these will. But as I’ve said before, this part is just an experiment to find out whether or not a cold frame would be useful. Who could have known that winter would begin and end in October this year!
