Sow tiny seeds for big results
One little seed can have a huge impact – here are three ways to make it happen
this is the perfect time of the year for planting. The weather is still warm, so your time outside is more comfortable. And the soil retains its moisture longer as the sun’s intensity wanes.
The milder temperature also means it’s a good time to plant from seed, be it vegetables or flowers.
Salads are still on the menu and lettuce is
a quick food fix, maturing at about 6-7 weeks. But you can pop into the patch earlier and pick the outer leaves for a fast salad sandwich lunch. Carrots are a year-round crop and great for freezing. Try sowing seeds that produce purple carrots. They are higher in antioxidants and nutrients than orange ones.
Stagger your sowing of lettuce seeds to get a longer harvest of the sweet leaves.
