We hope you enjoyed the May 15 event. Below is planting information for the seeds you received.
Team coaches: Show us how your giant pumpkin seedlings are doing! Be sure to check in with us throughout the growing season. Share your photos with us on Facebook.
In this pot is 1 seed pellet that contains 3 types of lettuce. Get a mixed salad in one seed. It will have both a Greenleaf and Red leaf lettuce along with spicy Asian green to make a mix of flavors that’s great as a regular salad or stir fry. Place your starter cup in the light on the window sill and keep no more than about 1/2-1 inch of water in the bottom of the cup at all times. When the seed germinates from the top of the cube pot and is about 2 inches tall, you can then take the cube and plant it in a pot.
Find a flower pot that is about 5-6 inches in diameter at the top. Fill it with fresh potting soil leaving about ½ inch of space form the top of the pot. Make sure there is a hole in the bottom of the pot for drainage. You will notice with this seedling that there are 3 or more different seedlings coming up together. Plant the cube with the seedlings in the potting soil so that the top of the cube is flush with the top of the soil level. Continue to grow the “pot of salad” in a cool, 50-55 degree, sunlit place until the plants are about 6-8 inches tall. At this point you can cut the top 1/2 of the lettuce plants together and use it for you eating pleasure. Continue growing the “salad pot”. More leaves will grow and develop and when they get to be 6-8 inches tall you can cut it again. You may be able to get a total of 3-4 cuttings from the same plant. Bon appetit!
