Now that it's March and the days are getting longer the greens are growing really fast. The benches are filling up and I am eating lots of salad.
I looked back at my original fall plan for wintergreens and realized I never once wrote about the media trial I outlined! This trial ran successfully in the fall, so I'm doing it again to see if I get the same results in the spring.
It's a pretty simple experiment: there are five media types in which I grow mizuna, lettuce and spinach. I measure leaf length and harvest yield while the greens grow and use that data to compare growth rate at the end.
