Desperately Wanting To Grow Stuff

Category: Container Gardening | Posted: Mon Mar 14, 2016 11:52 pm

Today, I got my seeds in the mail. Most of these seeds will be grown in the garden once I eventually get it. I'm keeping them in a cool, dark place until they're needed.

The only thing that didn't come, due to being back ordered, were the cucumber seeds. I don't know how big that package will be. I've never really noticed the size of cucumber seeds before. So, I don't know if I'm getting a little pouch or a big sack of seeds but the quantity will be 1,000 seeds. Regardless, I'm looking forward to growing them along with everything else.

This is where my crazy plan comes into play. It's completely loony. Then again, so am I. I'm going to restart the back patio garden with the hopes that, this time, it'll grow something meaningful. This will require me to invest in some patio furniture so that the management doesn't clear my garden out this time but, I'm hoping anyway, that the extra money spent will be worth it in peppers, basil and tomatoes.

I'll also be growing some in my room, utilizing the grow light of the Aerogarden of Serendipity. Forty-five watts is a lot of brightness to have shining only on an herb garden. I'm hoping that some of the excess light might aid the growth of a few plants in pots. I'm going to be very cautious and ensure that there are no little critters making a home in the soil I use.

To that end, I refuse to buy the Potting Mix That Must Not Be Named due to their perennial issue with Fungus Gnats. I'm going to try Pro-Mix instead and hope for the best.

I'm still up in the air as far as what to grow but my mind is starting to settle on the following three:

Organic Roma Tomatoes
Lettuce Leaf Basil
Sweet Pickle Organic Pepper

This should be enough to tide me over while I wait for growing space. Once I get that space, the sky's the limit. :)
