Signs of germination

If you were betting on Kohlrabi to be the first to germinate (admit it, some of you will bet on anything), you won! This morning, I saw several tiny green specks emerging from the soil. It’s important to note how TINY they are, because this is the point which the sprouts need air and light.

Holding in the moisture at this point will kill the sprouts. As it was, I removed 2 furry little sprouts that were too small to see last night. We planted these guys Monday night and they germinated in less than 5 days. Pretty quick, I think!

We will move them to the light table, give them 16 hours per day of light, and keep them watered until they are ready for transplant.

Now we’ll keep a close eye on the other members of the cabbage family, our Brussels sprouts and cauliflower. They are likely to be next.
