The plants we grow
The plants enter the rafts after about 10 Days.
And spend approximately 4 weeks till harvest in the rafts.
We get our Cherokee Lettuce seeds from here.
The root system at about week 3.
Basil is a hardy multi harvest crop. We tend to plant these in smaller 1/2 rafts, and harvest them almost weekly.
When flowers start to appear at the top tips, we pluck these off to encourage continued leaf growth.
We have been trailing Romaine for a couple of weeks to see if this is a viable crop.
This is an other useful multi harvest crop.
We generally grow this in the Natural Garden, but as you see here is also grows well in a media bed.
Here you can see down a row of rafts with the different crops.
