These onions, leeks and chives were sown on January 27th (using up what I had left of last year’s seed) and have been in the greenhouse the entire time. This is something that will germinate even with relatively low temperatures so there’s no need to waste the precious limited space under the indoor grow lights for these. Heavily multi sown large modules. Onions have really tough root systems so they can be torn apart when divided without suffering any substantial root damage that would negatively affect their future growth. Any of these can also be planted out in clumps as well as individually.

The artichokes and cardoons that I sowed on February 2nd were moved out into the poly tunnel today. Not a spectacular germination rate, and the ones that I tried to grow last year didn’t do all that well, but I figured that I’d just use up whatever seeds I had left and give it another go. I’ve got a few here anyway, and I’ll probably pot them up into something larger in about a week.

The organization of the poly tunnel is coming along. The top shelves at least have been cleared for seed trays. So far in here I have onions and leeks, hollyhocks, brassicas, and beets and I just moved artichokes and cardoons that I had started indoors under grow lights out there today. (These are all fairly cold tolerant so they should be fine in here until it REALLY starts to warm up). I’m trying to time it so that some of these things will be ready to plant out or be moved outside by the time I really get going with things like tomatoes, peppers, basils and other high heat lovers. There’s still a little bit of clutter that needs to be organized but we’ll get to that tomorrow. I also have a hot mess just outside the greenhouse that needs to be cleaned up as well.
