Although I have finished data collection for the germination trials, I have been observing the sprouted seeds as they grow.
|Lettuce from white plastic, plastic with holes and clear plastic low tunnel coverings.|
I've commented before on the pigmentation of lettuce grown under the different low tunnel treatments. Those little seedlings have grown quite a bit in two weeks, but the pigmentation patterns continue.
I planted plugs in trays of soil on the 13th of February (on the left). A week later the greens look fuller and many of the plugs have more leaves.
These pictures of arugula are also from the 13th and 20th of February, respectively. In just a week the seedlings have gone from cotyledon stage to the true leaf stage.
Today I am going to plant a few herbs to see how they grow in the tunnels. I am thinking about dill, cilantro, parsley and basil. Any other ideas? What would you like me to try growing?
