Sowed some Greens

The weather was nice today, albeit windy, but I managed to get out at the office and sow some kale and bok choy. I sowed them in the beds by the Extension Office. With tonight's predicted rain, they should germinate fairly soon.

The kale is a variety called Nero Di Toscana -- reading from the seed packet 'also known as Black Palm as it does resemble a palm tree. Dark green leaves are narrow and have a blistered/crumpled texture'. It is 50 days to maturity.

The bok choy is a variety called 'Joi Choi', a fairly popular variety. It is 45 days to maturity.

Greens, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, lettuce, spinach, carrots, and onions should be sown or transplanted this month. Don't wait too late since they will suffer with warm temperatures.
