The radishes are doing well! They’re on their way to a yummy salad in a few days. I expected them to be ready to eat today, day 5, based on the last batch I grew, but the other batch was right over the heat vent so I think that’s why these ones are taking longer. They’re in a window and they have a lot less heat on them.
The broccoli seems to be taking longer too – I thought it was quicker like the radishes – but there are little tails on the seeds now, you can try to make them out in the camera phone pic!
AND – finally – I see little pea shoots beginning to emerge! The peas are definitely taking their time.
I’ll be bringing the radishes to the La Leche League Garage Sale this morning, so people can take a closer look. If you have time this morning, stop by the First United Church in Waterloo, at 16 William St, to have a look at garage sale items as well as some items from vendors. My friend Carolyn will be there with Discovery Toys, and there will be other vendors too but I’m not sure who.
Hope to see you there!
The broccoli seeds have little tails now!! And the radishes have tiny curled leaves, waiting to turn green and unfurl. Peas…. well, they’re still soaking up the moisture. They’re slower than the others, probably because they’re a much larger seed and need to soak up more water.
I can hardly wait to see them tomorrow, I’m sure the radishes will be out in leaf. They grow so fast! I’ll be bringing the radishes to the garage sale/swap that I’m attending tomorrow, so you can see them up close if you come!
The website is slowly changing, hopefully for the better…. I added an “Events” page, so it’s easier to keep track of where you can find Sarah’s Kitchen Gardens.
So much to do…. I better get back to my preparations for tomorrow!
This morning when I checked on my sprouts, they appeared swollen, but showed no other signs of germination. So I put the covers back on to wait for tomorrow’s inspection. Then, I put together a small army of sprout kits for people to buy.
They are selling for $10 each plus tax in my online store, if you want to try it out.
Here’s a photo of the seed packets I branded:
It’s been a busy few days! I’m also getting ready to be a vendor at the La Leche League Garage Sale here in Waterloo. It was very short notice, but I want to get my name out there so I’m putting together what I can. More interesting things to come, once I figure out packaging!
If you want to come to the Sale, here’s some information:
Time: Thursday, November 18, 10 am – 12 Noon
Location: First United Church Waterloo, 16 William St W, Waterloo
I will be having a draw at my table – enter your name to win a gift certificate for Sarah’s Kitchen Gardens – so come if you can! There will also be raffle prizes at the sale, some from other vendors and one from me, so it sounds like it will be a good time.
If anyone has any other ideas of how to get my name out there I’d be happy to hear them….
