On my Harvest Monday, February 13 posting, I posted about rooting sweet potato slips for Locust Grove Heritage Vegetable Garden. All four (4) sweet potatoes rooted. I potted them and will be taking them to Locust Grove’s greenhouse where I know they will be very happy.
This is what they looked like on January 26.
Left to right: Purple, Laceleaf, Georgia Jet and Frazier White.
This is what they looked like on February 23.
After I potted them on February 23.
Both varieties of my Chinese celery germinated well so did the mesclum (oops, missed a cell). Need to thin the mesclum but am waiting to see if I can recongize the different varieties. Would hate to thin and left with mostly one variety.
The spinach was a total failure. Only 3 seeds out of 48 germinated.
In one of my previous posts I mentioned that I read about growing peanuts sprouts and was going to give it a try. Another failure.
The health food store did not have raw peanuts so I decided to use the raw peanuts from the ethnic store. After 4 days of rinsing and draining nothing happened. Will do some more research to see what I missed.
