Whats growing this week?

Well the dandelion and landcress seeds are staring to peep through, I should have marked these as I can’t remember which tray contains which seeds, until they grow a bit bigger.

    aren’t dandelions a weed?

    • iguanagirl77 said

      In modern uk we think of dandelions being as a nuisance and therefore a weed, but actually you can eat the leaves in salads like rocket or even make coffee from the roots, you can buy dandelion coffee in health food shops.

      The seeds I have sown are specially cultivated for eating, I buy my seeds from Chiltern seeds as they offer lots of variety such as heirloom varieties and some vegetables which are more commonly grown in the usa, such as collards and msutard greens.
