Well it hasnt quite been two weeks since i posted about starting our baby plants but here is a wee update.
The plants in the home made containers failed. Well they did and they didnt. My kids were over excited about watering and soaked the paper bags till they fell apart. The seedlings. I tried salvage what i could, but they didnt make it.
However our cut off containers made from milk jugs and juice bottles are doing great. We have 2-3 inch tall tomato plants! I really hope that they continue to grow and get stronger.
Our Tomato seedlings
And our pot of onions.
Onions are a really easy one to grow. We buy bundles of green onion at the store. I cut off the bottoms and plant them and cut off the tops to eat. Then they grow in a pot till we want onion. Usually in the evenings at dinner, the kids pop off a few onions and munch on them.
To start our foods outside, the nights have to stay above freezing. We have been sitting at about 36 degrees at night so i decided to go ahead and plant our potatoes.
This is my huge Whiskey Barrel. Last year we had 7 potato plants in it! Its about 3 ft across, i know it dosent look like it from the pictures but it is big.
And this was my totally inspired, i need more containers to grow potatoes in, container. It was previously used as a toy tub in the garage for outdoor toys.
Yes i need more soil. Probably 3-5 cubic feet more soil, but im stranded carl-less 30 miles from the nearest store i can buy soil so they will have to make do.
