Seedlings Growing In Spring.

When these little fellas popped their heads through the soil, bet they didn't think the hottest day on record in August was going to greet them. I actually had to go out in the day time and water these as the winds were so fierce and hot.

Carrots looking pretty good there and I have 2 rows growing.

Spring onions from my own seed saving collection. When these are big enough I'll transplant them to a new area, I am preparing for over the hotter months.

Pak Choy getting bigger.

Leafy oak lettuces doing their thing mrgreen .

Once these seedlings are old enough to be transplanted, they are off over into the no-dig area under some bird netting.

I think only 1 little red leaf lettuce survived the heat of yesterday. So I am going to let this one go to seed, so I can collect more seeds for following sowing/harvests. I have never saves lettuce seeds before, so if the plant gets that far, I'll be learning something new.

Today was a kinder day, weather wise. Though after all that hot wind yesterday, there was a cool wind blowing on my legs today. Much nicer.

Until next time....hoo roo
