In The Garden: A New Season


We waited about a month later than last year to get our veggies started and I still think it may have been too soon. These photos are from about day 4 after planting. We are currently 3 weeks in now and this weekend we have to release them into the wild because they are growing all over my living room! We bought this little mini greenhouse to try this year and if you want to speed up the growing cycle I would highly suggest it. Within a week and a half our plants had fully outgrown the greenhouse. We had to rig up the lights to hang without the cover over because the plants were so big. They just grew like weeds in there! Our first guaranteed frost-free day in our area is June 5 but fingers crossed the weather stays above freezing once our plants are out in the garden. Hopefully I will remember my camera this weekend when we plant them and take a few photos. I have been so slack at that lately! 

What we planted in our indoor mini greenhouse (32 plant tray):
  • 2 cherry tomatoes
  • 2 beefsteak tomatoes
  • 2 butternut squashes
  • 2 yellow zucchinis
  • 4 cucumbers
  • 4 pumpkins
  • 16 super sweet corns
What will go straight into the garden this weekend:
  • beets
  • carrots
  • potatoes
  • onions (already out there)
What we planted in trays left outside on the balcony:
  • marigolds
  • sweetpeas
  • snapdragons
  • lupins
Indoor Herbs:
  • cilantro
  • basil
  • garlic chives
  • dill
  • herb lavender
  • one lone garlic (that was in a bunch from the grocery store but one clove looked green like it wanted to grow so I popped it in some dirt under the plant lights and it grew nearly 4 inches in 5 days!!)
