Well, the garden is in!
I used the same gate and fencing from the backyard in last year’s garden. I had to buy one more roll to complete it.
I picked up a few more t-posts and two cattle panels for the tomatoes, cucumbers and pole beans.
I’ve got the broccoli, kale, lettuce, carrots, bunching onions and some spinach planted. I need to start some more Kale and spinach. I’m trying to use the spinach as a border.
I still need to get the chard in and I’m waiting for it to warm up before I put in the tomatoes and peppers.
I bought a heat mat to get the peppers to germinate and it’s working great.
I learned how to make this grow box on YouTube.
Once the seeds germinate and sprout I move them into the windowsill or cold box.
I moved a few things out of the box today and moved cucumbers in. Re-potting them from the soil blocks where they started to sprout into the Styrofoam cups.
I’m also growing herbs and flowers and ended up sprouting some spaghetti squash seeds because I couldn’t resist when they were already sprouting inside the organic squash I bought at the store.
Now they’re growing quite well in the pots. I guess they’ll go down on the hill with the other larger plants like the watermelon.
I’m thinking of growing the eggplant and zucchini in containers to save room in the garden.
The cold box is working very well, too! Everything is staying protected and thriving.
So that’s the current update and hopefully everything will start taking off soon.
