This might look like a tray of microgreens, but it’s not. It’s my summer salad crops — hundreds and hundreds of lettuces, dill, some purple shiso, celtuce (cross between celery and lettuce) — 12 different varieties in total just in this one tray.
I use home made seed raising mix, and will plant them on into home made potting mix: no single use plastic endorsed by this kitchen garden coach!
I’ll bring this tray to the Wednesday gardening session at Green Bay Community House tomorrow for sharing. Please book a ticket on Eventbrite if you are coming along, or send me a message so that I pack enough goodies for everyone.
Thanks as always to the @greenbaycommunityhouse and Whau Local Board for helping make this so accessible to anyone who wants to come and start gardening with us.
We’ll do salad planters tomorrow. I’m hoping each person can take a 5 litre pot home with some of these little babies, as well as some edible flowers to add a pop of colour. I’ll bring a bunch of the edible flowers in season right now, so you can taste a few new ones.
A planter with edible flowers is proving to be a popular Christmas gift idea, and if you want to give someone a planter you’ve created yourself, then now is the time to get going on it. (It’s also the time to let me know you want one custom made, so that I can get going on it for you)
Tasks like this are perfect for indoor gardening on a rainy day, so do come and join in the fun, even if we get rain again tomorrow. - 4 hours ago
