Rocket Seeds - First True Leaves

The seedlings have reached the next stage of the measurement process.... true leaves!

The Rocket Science seedlings were busy again over the Bank Holiday weekend and some reached the next measurement milestone of 'true leaves'. These are leaves that are no longer in the seedling stage but considered foilage. The photograph shows that, although still small, some leaves are beginning to resemble the rocket that we are more used to seeing in our salads. This has been recorded on our chart on the noticeboard in the theatre foyer and tomorrow (Friday 6th May) the Space Cadets will be counting how many seedlings are still alive in each tray.
