Gardening once again (: w/Pix

Category: My garden | Posted: Wed Mar 19, 2008 3:28 am

Well Howdy from Central Oklahoma once again!

Ive been semi busy.. besides remodeling parts of my house, I wanted the task of attempting to grow a garden once again. last years veggie garden was a total disaster so of course its time to try try again! (:

I decided to make use of all that clear plastic that covered the laminate flooring boxes and tape several pieces together to get enough to cover my lil lamp. It seems that I have accomplished something!
I of course with the help of my (soon to be 3 year old!) daughter putting dirt in the little plastic containers and of course all over the kitchen floor (is there any other way?) I got to put seeds in as well.
Heres the list so far: Started 3-10-08 (and a day or 2 later)

**Cherry tomatos straight from the tomato that i didnt eat. 6 sprouts out of 10 growing.

**Cucumber -still waiting to sprout since I had to redo it yesterday.

**Tomatillos: all 9 are growing but one or 2 didnt grow the first set of leaves for some reason.

**Globe anthums (Pink)successfully growing 11 plants.

**Marigolds- they were orange last year.. but i think they will be yellow now? Only one single sprout popping up still ):

**Danish Cross- ive over seeded accidentally but they are sprouting so fast (Thanks Bsewnsew) ?? I am sorry Im pretty sure it was bsewnsew ... bethie sent me seeds too. (please forgive the memory problem).

**Lilac seeds (No sprouts ?? Might be doing something wrong?)

**Squash> although Im not sure if it is yellow crooked neck squash or zuccini. The store seemed to mix up all the zuccini and yellow squash seeds and mark them wrong on the packages and I dont remember if i put them in their proper packages last year. We shall see this summer! lol

**Oh and last but not least.. I planted today 3 dianthis seeds. How ever you spell it lol.

I ran out of containers until my daughter east more fruit cups lol. And my green house is very tiny as you will see in the pic. I used an old window to set up on. I'll ask my questions on the message boards next. Ok, heres the lil pics i took. Thanks for reading ! Sorry its been forever. Im soooo glad to be back!! I may have a mint green thumb after all!

Oh and I got to prune my roses too ! (: ouch! lol

Sowing on the kitchen floor is the best! Congratulations on all your new sprouts.

It's exciting watching the new arrivals isn't it! Hope they keep coming for you.

You have a lovely bunch of new babies there Starlite. It's good to hear that your daughter is already taking an interest in gardening (albeit a messy one LOL) she may become a member of GardenStew herself when she's older.

I love your 'greenhouse' - as long as it does the trick it doesn't matter what size it is does it?

Looking forward to more piccies once your seedlings have matured.

Thanks everyone (: I cant believe how fast things can grow. I got to add some "birds beak" pepper seeds to the mix as well. We shall see what appears!! (:

From your ??? on true leaves, the pix here are not the true leaves, they are the baby leaves. Give them more time, you'll be busy soon enough trying to get them all potted up. Good luck, your well on your way to a bountiful garden.
