I started my Greens early this year, as experiment. Most of them are new for me, last year I planted only kale red russian, pack choi and mizuna from seeds.
On 1/1/2013 I put the seed in cell tray, in a month they looked like this -
I transplanted them in individual pots to see how they will do.
This is Kale Starbor from Johnnyseeds.
"The finely curled, dark blue-green leaves
can be harvested with one cut instead of being stripped off the plant
one at a time, as kale is traditionally harvested. The compact plants,
produce leaves that are very uniform, resist yellowing, and have good
Similar to Winterbor but purple-red. Redness and curling are enhanced by cold weather. For garnishing. "
Will see this one growing!
Broad purple leaves with slightly toothed
margins. Color appears early on young leaves. Mild flavor. Best for baby
leaf as it is quick to bolt."
Right now they looks perfect, can't wait to eat them!
Leaves are mostly green with purple
margins at baby stage, while mature plants are purple tinged all over.
More delicate appearance than Mizuna. Plants are very slow to bolt. Mild
Japanese greens for salad and braising
mixes. Uniform, upright plants with slender, fleshy, rounded green stems
and dark green, rounded leaves. Good heat tolerance. "
Napa cabbage minuet - I see some leaf damage and wonder what's it?
Collard Georgian - last year I bought seedlings from homedepot, thay stand the whole year.
Pack Choi black summer
"Broad, flat, light green petioles are topped with oval dark green leaves. Forms a perfect thick vase shape even when small."
Now let's go to the basement where my grow lights are.
"Beautiful addition to salads or micro mix.
Upright plants with rounded leaves and green stems. Color will be
darker when sown in summer and harvested in fall."
Kale dwarf blue curled
Dill and scallions.
