We showed you our tiny seedlings
this morning, but now we want to back up for a moment and show you the seeds we planted. We were fascinated by the range of sizes and shapes in the seeds we planted...
First up - the beets! They were are all knobbly and odd-shaped - rather like Grape-Nuts.
The cucumbers were exactly what you'd expect... cucumber seeds!
...as were the beans. They're just beans, of course!
The mesclun lettuces, on the other hand, were a mix of many kinds of seeds. These will sprout chervil, radicchio, arugula, and more.
And the radishes
were tiny, perfectly round brown seeds.
Were you surprised by the shape or size of any of the seeds you planted this spring?
