Fall At The Farm

I am very pleased at how well my little transplants are doing. I kicked off the fall planting season on September 7th by soil blocking about 500 squares. I know, outrageous number of soil blocks but it makes me more interesting that way.

I sowed dwarf grey sugar peas, onions, dill, cilantro, basil, spinach, cabbage, broccoli, chard, beets, radish, mustard greens, collard greens, arugula, mesclun, and several different lettuces.

Hey! Sorry I missed your comment/question. Barley Malt Powder is different than Barley Malt Extract. You can buy Barley Malt Extract from Culver City Brewing Supply on Sepulveda Blvd. They also ship. It's made by a company called Wyler's Light.
Hope that helps.
