Sowing some more outside

And the lettuce from last time sowing is already coming up

I have some peppermint, some green mint and lemon balm to sow. Since these plants tent to grow rampant I have sown them in some separate planting pots. Later I have to see where I can plant these, so no other plants will be repressed.

Then I put seed of following varieties into the ground:

  • Radish Riesenbutter
  • Carrots Lobbericher
  • Onion De Brunswick

These are historical varieties.

Other than that I sowed parsley root Halblange and winter hedge onion. I also covered these seeds with a thin layer of straw to prevent the soil from drying out.

And in the stone bed, where by now I have collected some herbs, I have sown dill and parsley. In this bed I cover the soil around the plants with woodchips, so I also covered the seeds with some woodchips to prevent the soil from drying out.

From last time sowing the romaine lettuce is already coming up. That makes me happy.
