Here we grow. This winter has been full of amendments to the no toil in the soil urban farm with food waste being layered on top of my soil and a beta proprogation method picture above. The garlic lays dormant under a used sun visor.
While others watch the big game, I begin a new season of germinating a tiny urban farm. My 12 weeks begins like it always has with Parsley with the small seed of hope that requires 10 to 14 days to grow and this year I have select a summer leek to start from seed. The leek seed looks like a small speck of coal…. I choose the Annie’s Heirloom Organic variety called the American Flag! For what it is worth, I stood to start those seeds during the National Anthem.
50 seeds with a 70% germination rate anticipated. Having some faith and optimism that I will have a harvest in 130 days… or just over 4 months away, right around 4th of July.
