Just when I was starting to "de-stress" along comes Melinda and the new and improved Growing Challenge. A new twist to the challenge start the veggies and fruit from seed and save the seeds from harvest for the next season.
I am determined to grow a decent head of Broccoli, if it's the last thing I ever grow. Broccoli stresses me, It is one of those things I just cannot seem to grow. Even if I have perfect conditions for it. It is like "Crunchy's Lemon Tree, she is stressing out over the tree. And let me tell you- it aint healthy.
I tried growing demon-broccoli from seed last summer and when the starts fried, I tried a winter crop- I wasn't counting on this place turning into the artic tundra! And slugs! Who knew that slugs consider vegetable seedlings a delicay? I tire myself out over those damn broccoli seedlings. That and those evil slugs have just about done me in. All this for a vegetable I wouldn't have sneezed at let alone eat as a kid.
So here is to a new growing season and to renewed hope and desire. And a good shaker of salt, for my little sluggo friends.
