More vegetable seedlings

Encouraged by the robust growth of chye sim in our office balcony, we started sowing more vegetable seeds. The kang kong seedlings proved to be the fastest grower.

These spinach seedlings are so tiny! So far, spinach that I've grown in containers tend to grow very slowly. They stay stagnant for weeks, sometimes even months, before shooting up suddenly.

On the other hand, those grown by my dad in his farm (on fluffy soil) mature much faster. I can only conclude that spinach is more fussy and will do well in well drained soil.
