I had hoped to get the seedlings transplanted today, but I got a late start, so it didn't get done. I did make it to the Salvation Army thrift shop to pick up some large bowls, and to Fleet Farm to buy the soil. I managed to find a few containers around the house to use too. Total investment for this project (containers plus soil) is under $20. We plan to use the soil in the raised outdoor garden when we move the plants again.
The peas have caught up with the cucumbers now and just today started to grow their very first climbing tendrils! I've got to figure out a trellis system that can be transported with them out to the garden later!
As for the broccoli, they're looking terrible since I moved the tray to the window. I think we will be having broccoli sprouts with dinner tomorrow.
I'm continuing to offer the reptile light to the straggler broccoli plant that got moved to the indoor garden. If I named my plants, I'd call this one "Last Hope." I'll be trying more seeds outdoors anyway.
The peppers are looking nice now that most are up and growing. I can hardly wait to see what colors we get from the 26 rainbow pepper seeds we bought from the store!
I also wanted to share the root growth in just 24 hours for the front-right pea plant in the indoor garden. Refer to yesterdays post for the original photo. Here's what we found today!
I noticed that avocados were on sale at the store yesterday, so we picked some up and made guacamole with dinner tonight. Turns out, I don't like avocado. Good to know. I had saved the pits, thinking I could grow our own, but now I'm not sure.
I've been exploring the world of seed trading, and have found someone willing to trade a few of my meager seed collection for some zinnia seeds. They look pretty, and easy to harvest for repeat planting, so I'll give them a try!
