Brave Baby Leaves

IMG-20131121-00674A quick post in praise of these brave souls: they are gamely growing (albeit it very slowly now) in the propagation tunnel, despite these freezing and blustery conditions. The brassicas such as mustards, red cabbage sprouts and mizuna are struggling on, but the mibuna looks the most cross and seems to feel the cold and wet. The leaf celery (at the front of picture, light green) is the slowest growing, but is probably the hardiest, and will simply sit there all winter, growing only incrementally until the days start to lengthen again, and we get a few more sunny days. However the forecast for tomorrow is for full sun (but therefore very cold nights), so they may grow another mm or two. Keep going brave babies!
