Seed viability

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.

How wonderful to hear the seeds are loving your soil! :)

All these seeds have been saved this season so that might have something to do with the success rate, too.

Your Kohlrabi looks great. Hope it'll bulb up nicely and give you a nice meal. :)

Hi Stewart, your red leprEchauns and drunken women sounds like a good Irish night out!!Anyone can have a yellow hibiscus you have a stunning orange one.The info on the Jerusalem artichokes is good as they are a new veg here not easy to get and grown by few. I have heard they are veg you need set only once as they come back again and again.

Stewart said...

Hi V G, I was thinking the seed must be very fresh as the germination rath has been very high, thanks again, I'm having a ball growing all these different varieties.

Hi Peggy, I never thought of it but I can see it being a good night on the town with drunken women and red leprechauns running all around the place, lol.
Thanks for the different point of view on the hibiscus and i agree with you, I think it's a keeper.

Jerusalem artichokes are the same with any corm producing plant and if you leave any part of the corm in the soil they will re shoot. But then again in your cold winters I'm not sure if they would withstand the freezing.

It is better to avoid using flash in your design as it takes longer to open and is not search engine friendly.
The important smallest resolution that is widely
used is the 800 x 600 resolutions so all websites should be made
to fit resolutions equal or higher than this. The inception however didn't diminish the power of Microsoft technologies anyhow.

Hello this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering
if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.

I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything. But
think of if you added some great images or video clips to give your posts more, "pop"!
Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips,
this website could undeniably be one of the very best in its field.

Fantastic blog!

I'm new to building sites and I was wanting to know if having your site title relevant to your content really that critical? I notice your title, "Blogger: My Veggie Garden " does appear to be spot on with what your blog is about yet, I prefer to keep my title less content descriptive and based more around site branding. Would you think this is a good idea or bad idea? Any kind of assistance would be greatly appreciated.
