Kale Seedlings

Posted: Today at 12:11

Thanks Edd

Your first one looks more like  them

I took pots with what I think is kale and also the intruder back to the GC that I got the compost from

They think the odd ones MAY be radish

Its getting almost to exciting to bear !! 

Bee Hotel

Posted: Today at 12:08

My box seems to have had half the tubes opened in October which I dont think is the time that bees come out

Perhaps there is another reason for the exit

There are 5 tubes still blocked up and I hope to catch the bees when they emerge in Sprint Time

One seedling which I believe to be the kale has a leaf shaped like a stinging nettle whilst the other imposters are shaped more rounded

The spikes are stiff

Im no expert  but if you can identify it at the local GC or online then I suspect all my Learned Chums will be able to steer you in the right direction

Hi Edd

No flowers

If you imagine a circle of a series of umbrella spikes 1/2 inch wide sticking out every 3 inches up a stem like a pagoda

Pale green

My neighbour has some plants in here garden that have umbrella like spikes that stick out in a circle at right angles to the stem

The plant is light green

When she touched them some white sap was produced which irrated her skin for a couple of weeks

I have just spotted a couple in my garden

I dont have a camera

? Any thoughts Friends

Kale Seedlings

Just potted them all up and there is a small  difference in the leaf shape between 6 of the 13 so that may give me a clue to what is growing

There were obviously seeds in the bag of compost I got from the GC

Its very exciting waiting to see what comes from the other 7
