Veggie planting – March 2016

While seeds sown more than 2 weeks  ago (February 13 & 14, 2016) happily grow, it’s time to continue sowing more veggies and new batch of those that will be harvested continuously. So today following seeds were sown in seedling tray:

  • Mesclun – lettuce mix (in order to have continuous harvest)
  • Tomato “rainbow blend” * [germinated in a week, well]
  • Broad leaf sage [germinated in two weeks, but damaged by snail]
  • Cilantro (longstanding) [poor germination]

*I am actually not very happy about my choice to buy this blend – it is a mixture of 14 varieties, but how will I recognize them? Some need support, some not. Some are my favorite, some not … Blends like this maybe make sense for lettuce or ornamental plants, but not for tomatoes. Next year I will rather go for only 3-4 particular varieties.


  • Black Krim
  • Cherokee Purple
  • Black From Tula
  • Pink Brandywine
  • Red Brandywine
  • Yellow Pear
  • Large Red Cherry
  • Red Zebra
  • Ace 55
  • Beefsteak
  • Tiny Tim
  • German Johnson
