Starting seeds indoors isn’t just for spring. We’ve had luck this year growing lettuce under a shade cloth throughout the summer, even given the record heat. But the soil is just too hot for the seeds to germinate. So back to the soil blocks. Here’s pictures of the latest batch. The left tray includes beets, chard, spinach, asian greens, and kale. The middle tray has a mix of different lettuce. The right tray has a pansy mix. The pansies took longer to germinate but are now about 1/4″ tall. Here’s a pic of the other two trays.
