During the snow last week I went back and looked through last January's posts and realized I was about two weeks late in starting my fall seeds in comparison to last year. WOW! I cant' believe that time has flown by so fast. I haven't even taken the last of the fall broccoli out of the garden yet. Last year we lucked out in that spring weather came pretty early, but I'm not as hopeful this year, but we'll see.
Today I started some bib lettuce, a lettuce variety mix, rainbow chard, broccoli and those small Gonzalez cabbages I tried last year. They worked out really well in the SFG, so I did some more of those as well as a savoy leaf one. I'm excited for those. I also planted one more thing - something I haven't tried before- but I need to first offer an apology to the lettuce seeds I berated last year for being too small. I now know their superiority and gigantic size for I have met the true fiend of the veggie seed world: the celery seed.
Yes, I'm trying celery for the first time and have no idea what I'm doing. I started them inside since I'm thinking they, like everything else on this planet, will not grow well at all in the GA summer and as much of a head start I can give them, the better. I'd love any and all suggestions you can offer on growing celery, however....
