Growing all things good!
Last week we finally took our little seedlings from the grow light to sunshine! They were ready to meet the real world of 12 hours of light on and off.
Last year we built 5 raised beds in our back yard and had a bounty of tomatoes and zucchini. So this year we decided to expand our options and added beans, melons, cucumbers, onions, and peppers!
One of last year's tomato plants threw off seeds and re-sprouted by herself "outside" the raised bed. It's huge...as you can see behind Richard, who is ready to plant with spoon in hand and babies looking eager for a new home!
Of course they had to be planted EARLY in the morning, according to my dh who did a lot of surfing on the subject...so out we were in the garden with the morning light!
Did I say so early that make-up and brushed hair had to wait?
I think we've finally got the watering puzzle down and now they are really starting to grow...will keep you posted along the way.
