This weekend I started many of my brassica seeds. I sowed romanesco and calabrese broccoli, red russian kale, early white vienna kohlrabi, and mizuna. Last year, all of my broccoli seedlings were eaten soon after transplanting outside. Hopefully I'll have better luck this time. I have never grown kohlrabi or kale before, so I'm interested to see how it goes.
My pepper and tomatillo seeds from last weekend are doing really well (as are the swiss chard). I'm surprised each year by how tall and leggy the tomatillos are at first. They always seem too thin and weak, but I guess that's just how they look at first.
The green tomatillos were first to germinate, followed by the purple tomatillos, and then the sweet peppers.
The green tomatillos (hiding behind the sweet pepper tag) are so leggy. This seems to happen every year, so hopefully it's normal.
These swiss chard seedlings germinated in less than 48 hours! Hopefully they'll survive long enough to transplant outside.
