Things are growing!

Post  GreenBlueberry on 4/23/2011, 5:51 pm

Well, I am not having a 100% success rate, due to hail storms and bugs, but considering I've never had a veggie garden and I grew many things from seed, I think I am doing well!
Here is the plot right after I added the grid and planted the first seeds and seedlings:


And here it is today.


The carrots on the lower right are taking FOREVER to come up. I planted those one month ago. You can't see the heirloom eggplant seedling that was mostly eaten by the flea beetles behind the broccoli Sad . I'm giving it one more week, and if it doesn't get better I will have to buy a regular one at Home Depot. The catnip (upper right) is very, very happy. And the marigolds are finally getting extra leaves and I saw one bud today (I grew those from seed).

Looking good!

Carrots are notorious for taking a long time to germinate. Have they germinated, but are just taking their own time to get going? Give them a chance. It is amazing what a little time will do for their growth.

Some germinated and haven't gotten their true leaves for like 2 weeks. Some didn't germinate at all. Some are finally growing real leaves. I had a couple of bad storms after I planted them, so maybe they just got washed away. You live and learn.
