On May 6th our Mesclun started sprouting and it is really growing good now. I see new little sprouts everyday and am shocked at how fast it grows.
Here is a picture that James took on May 6th.
And here is one from yesterday (May 12).
On the 6th there was maybe 5 sprouts and you can see that there are a lot more than 5 now. I’m a little worried about the scorching weather that we have in West Texas since Meslcun would rather have nice cool weather. I am fully prepared to move the whole barrell either inside the storage building or even into the kitchen if I start to see it suffering. It is protected from the afternoon sun, but I’m just not sure if that is going to be enough. We will see!
It grows so fast here that it is done by the time it gets hot.
yall should grow your own jalapenos. and bacon. seriously, a little pot bellied pig would be cool in your yard.
Well we do have jalapenos, actually a couple of plants, but no pigs and please stop giving James ideas like that!
