Hi all, I have to say the viability of the seeds I received from Veggie Gnome continues to astound me.
After just 10 days the Purple podded peas (see A Lovely Surprise) have erupted out of the soil like a space rocket, just incredible. There must be some good soil down their way or magic green thumbs.
As you can tell I don't have a trellis up yet so I'd better get cracking on that job in the next day or two.
Also making their way into the world are the Purple Dragon carrots.
They have come up like fleas on a dogs back so I'll be doing a little thinning in the next day or two as well.
I'm truly looking forward to tasting these guys so I'm hoping all goes well from here on.
On top of the strike rate of the lettuce 'Drunken woman' and 'Red leprechaun' that's about about a 1000% success.
I'm loving my Kohlrabi at the moment too, so I'm just putting up a photo to show you how they are going.
I'm thinking of slicing this one and frying it in some olive oil.
Bye for now and happy veggie gardening.
