I'm looking forward to next year! The rogue "Kama Sutra x ?" might be the most interesting plants ... I mean "Komatsuna x ?"


Now I understand. Brassica's demanding thirst is one of the things that got me to set up a tiny irrigation system. This may also explain why one of my earliest Brassica crops was my best. That bed was only shallowly amended over clay, but had sufficient nutrients. Maybe the clay held more water near the surface than later beds did, and the Bok Choy liked that.

It was sure frustrating to improve the soil and see the Brassicas do less well. I think I may also be accumulating some soil pathogens, thoguh the plants never look ILL, just grow slower.

Baker Creek Rare seeds also has larger packets that may be a better deal for seed traders than the small packets. You have to look for "Bulk Vegetables", which is listed as if it were a vegetable type of its own.
