I also put in over a hundred onion sets which should be ready in a month. The seedlings will probably take three months since they are so tiny. It was a beautiful, peaceful evening last night when I planted them so it was worth the time spent. I planted these seeds from Botanical Interest Seeds which I purchased at a local nursery.
Arugula (Rocket and Wild)
Beets (Gourmet and Early Wonder)
Kale (Red Winter and Italian Nero Toscana)
Mache (corn salad)
Mesclun Salad Mix (Farmers Market Blend and Gourmet Spicy Mix)
Radicchio (Palla Rossa Ashalim)
Romaine (Parris Island)
Radish (Cherry Belle)
Sorrel (common seed)
Swiss Chard (Bright Lights, Fordhook Giant and Ruby Red)
These I purchased at Home Depot. They have a really good selection now and the sets were fresh; I didn't find one in the bag that was dried up. If you wait too long to buy these and plant them you will end up with a bag of dried up sets. I try to keep the bags in a cool place, but with our heat at this time of the year it is tough. I need to make room in the refrigerator for the remaining sets.
Garlic (from sets)
Shallot (from sets)
Spring Onion (from sets)
Here are my raised beds for this years winter garden. Not much to look at but in a month they will be green and lush with all sorts of goodies for salads.
