We are going to get into the habit of doing posts where we show progress on almost all the things we have planted for the season. We have quite a bit growing at the moment, however, the spring season seems to be off to a slow start. I am blaming the long winter, cool soil temps, and some old lettuce seed that we tried to grow but haven’t had much luck with. Despite the bad lettuce seed, we were fortunate enough to have some lettuce from last year come up! We always let our lettuce produce seed, and last year some spilled on the ground. It’s growing wonderfully – much better than the lettuce we planted ourselves.
Our celery transplants are doing well. We are growing Utah Tall Celery this summer and its the first time we have ever grown it. Excited!
We were also surprised to find a few forgotten turnips this spring. We planted these last year, and they didn’t do a lot, due to poor soil. They sprung to life this spring, however, and have produced flower buds! We’ll be collection seed this fall and selling it in our Etsy Shop.
We also have all of our onions, shallots and leeks in the ground! I would list them off, but we have over 20 varieties of onion growing (we love onions) and are planning on collecting seed from each variety next year. Keep watching our shop for new additions.
