The joys of gardening. I can manage to get the seeds to grow (most of the time), and transplant into a larger cell without too much stress on them but when it comes to going in the ground I've had quite a few successful ones except for these!!! I do have to take some of the blame, I don't harden them off very well. I give them a feed of Yates seaweed and fish tonic to help with transplant shock but the first few beds don't want to do much. Spinach has been there for nearly 5 months... looking like that in the picture. I pick the yellow leaves off but it hasn't gotten any bigger. Once I seen the lettuce starting to do the same I knew I had to take drastic measures. First is giving myself the hard word on not hardening off and second is to get the soil tested for macro and micro nutrients in the soil but also for herbicides and other contaminants that could be present. Had that lightbulb moment when I seen the neighbour spraying the cherry blossom seedlings. So I'm going to get the whole lot done, even organic matter and soil profile. Wish me luck hope it all comes back good on contaminants!
