When we first transplanted the chard and kale, and direct-seeded the lettuce and arugula:
This is October 16th. The chard and kale were well-started, as you see. It took them a week or so to recover from transplanting.
October 24th (8 days later) we took these pictures. The lettuce and arugula have sprouted. The kale and chard have recovered and started to grow again.
October 27th- 11 days from transplanting and seeding. The chard is lush and full. We ate some that night, I think. And below are pictures from today, November 3rd.
All the herbs we brought in are happy.
The lettuce and arugula have grown. This is 18 days from seeding. It is pretty amazing how quickly it will change from here. In 10 more days we will have baby arugula leaves in our salads.
We hope to have a very green, lush winter!
