Some of you may recall my rooting ginger rhizome post of 1/14/13. I promised to keep you updated with the progress. Actually Charlie of Hotly Spiced inquired about the progress a few weeks ago but I had nothing to report then.
The ginger with the thicker (fatter) rhizome broke through the surface of the potting mix on 2/5/13. Still waiting for the thinner rhizome to show some form of life.
Isn’t it interesting, both varieties started on the same date, grown under the same condition yet one is so far ahead of the other? Sure wish I knew the name of the 2 varieties I am growing.
Really need to organize and get with my seed starting activities this week. But first I need to shovel a path to get into the shed to collect my seed starting cell packs and potting mix, then I need to wash and sterilize the cell packs and pots since I did not get around to doing so last fall.
I am so looking forward to spring. Grounds are still snow covered and frozen. Expecting rain tomorrow and should be a bit warmer. Hopefully much of the snow will melt/wash away and before long the grounds willl thaw and I can start digging in the garden and start planting. A cheerful thought.
