We spent the last week in Florida on vacation for a family reunion for Cameron’s family! After all our planned activities were done, I had to get over to a “you pick” farm! Oranges are in season in February so we were able to pick a few different kinds, temple and pineapple oranges.
The oranges were so sweet and delicious. It's like most other fruits and vegetables, tastes a million times better locally. It’s unfortunate that shippability has won out over flavor at the grocery store. I guess that’s why I love to shop from the backyard so much! :)
Yesterday as soon as we got home I started some more seeds. I always do my lettuce, spinach, and kale in soil blocks because it makes them so easy to transplant.
Seeds I started in Mini Blocks:
Winter Gem Lettuce
Little Gem Lettuce
Blue Curly Kale
Dazzling Blue Kale
Oh and I’m happy to report the self watering trays I bought for seed starting worked great! My friends who watched the chickens said they didn’t need to water them until the day before we returned home. Six days without needing to be watered that is pretty awesome.
