Gardening 2009-4

The leeks and onions aren’t doing so well. They started off great, sprouting in 2 days, but since then they haven’t done much. It’s been 2 weeks since they were planted… they should be about ready to go in the ground! Only one seed has grown to ~2 inches. The rest still look like sprouts. i may have let the soil get too dry and maybe then too hard for the roots to penetrate. The soil looked dark and moist, but it felt hard. So, instead of spritzing them from the top, I poured a bunch (probably a quart or so) of water into the bottom and they soaked it up! I also decided to put a pinch of peat on the seeds to give them a little cover… the sprouts looked too exposed… We’ll see how they do.
