Lettuce sprouts

Back to gardening topics, here is a quick post.

The week after leaving from Tokyo I had sown some lettuce and some komatsuna. I was wondering if it would be able to sprout since those days the weather just started to change, luckily they came out just some days before I left. Right now they continue to grow nicely.

Komatsuna sprouts

I went a little crazy putting to many seeds on the planter, and now I have too many plants, so I will have to thin them out when I get back, but I think is better to have too many plants than less. I hope they keep on surviving these days.


The lettuce and the komatsuna keep on growing nice, a bit too many though

The only problem is that I'm not sure how to do that, should i just pluck out some? or, is there any special method?  any suggestions?

Also, I'm still trying to get around the garden here, I will probably do some work this week. 


  1. When thinning, you can just pull out the seedlings you don't want, or you can snip them off with a pair of scissors, that way you don't disturb the roots of the plants you are leaving to grow. They look to be growing nice and strong.

  2. I have raised Komatsuna in my garden.

    Your planter looks too crowded and I think you'd better thin out smaller sprouts in order to raise bigger and much delicious komatsuna.

    In my case I'd thinned out some sprouts and I made about 1 or 2inch space between them.

  3. I'm looking forward to the progress of your lettuce sprouts. With such a small space to work with, you're really good at growing a variety of things!
