Signs Of Success

My experiment in non-soil based germination has yielded some success. There have been several Golden Acre cabbage sprouts that made it to the transplant stage, but only one each of the Valentine lettuce and Copenhagen cabbage. In the photo you can see a Golden Acre sprout front and center with a Copenhagen sprout off to the right. And just peeking above its container behind the Golden Acre sprout is very young Valentine lettuce.

Something Different This Season

This year I'm germinating my lettuce and cabbage seeds without soil and then transplanting the sprouts to see how well it works out. Wish me luck.
