Longer days, warmer nights
We have been planting as fast as we can, though it's hard to keep up with the rapid growth of the seedlings in the greenhouse. Each plant has an optimum time for planting out, and we monitor the plants by their root growth, leaf size, and stem sturdiness. The idea is to have uninterrupted growth, so that the plant doesn't stagnate in the cell. We just planted out some swiss chard, cabbages, leeks, broccoli, cauliflower, parsley, and head lettuce.
Green stems of garlic in the foreground, then radishes, arugula, spinach, and cabbages receding.
