In the fall, I provided cow and goat manure. This week I provided a peat substrate and basalt flour. The soil looks promising.

The seeds were soaked on 09.04. They hit on the ground on 11.04. The first seed that sprouted was 1072 Engel. Today is 04/16 and the seedlings look like this. So far, the weather here in Poland is very changeable and it is quite cold. Often there is still frost and snow.
