Okay, I’m cheating a little here. I’ve turned over a new leaf to post something on a regular basis , but it’s technically 12:07 a.m. when I am starting this post. I’m going to cheat by setting the publish time back a little. I’m thinking if you cheat and confess all in one felled swoop, it can’t be held against you too much.
So, what I did today was planted some kale, because my mother has been dropping hints about how good it is. I planted some peas, sugar snap peas. I reconfigured my light stand setup (pictures coming soon). These are to be grown indoors until transplanted outside.
I took the marigold seedlings that I had doubled up on and gave them separate quarters. I got to thinking that I was putting 12 seedlings in jeopardy by doubling up on them, and by separating them I’ll given 24 seedlings a fair chance. It’s kind of like a womb carrying more than one baby at a time. Pick a number out of the air. Eight did I hear you say? Octuplets? It’s better to have one plant/baby in a growing cell/womb because the one gets 100 percent of the benefit of the growing condition instead of sharing limited resources a bunch of different ways. This way I’ll have a good shot at healthy plants.
I also bought pvc pipes to make a row cover for one of the raised beds so I can put out the cool season veggies a little early
That’s it for tonight.
p.s. My Garden Girl seeds came. I got bok choy. That’s a new veggie for me. Thanks, Garden Girl!
