The plants we grow

Cherokee Lettuce

The plants enter the rafts after about 10 Days.

And spend approximately 4 weeks till harvest in the rafts.

We get our Cherokee Lettuce seeds from here.

The root system at about week 3.

Basil

Plants06.jpg Plants07.jpg

Basil is a hardy multi harvest crop. We tend to plant these in smaller 1/2 rafts, and harvest them almost weekly.

When flowers start to appear at the top tips, we pluck these off to encourage continued leaf growth.

Romaine

We have been trailing Romaine for a couple of weeks to see if this is a viable crop.

Kael

This is an other useful multi harvest crop.

We generally grow this in the Natural Garden, but as you see here is also grows well in a media bed.

Grow Beds

Here you can see down a row of rafts with the different crops.
