I’ve Started Growing Things and this Blog Will Be My Diary

1 Comment

I’m trying to grow stuff. Up to this point in my life, I have not had a green thumb. I’ve decided to document my abject failures and wild successes with growing my own food in this blog. I’m hoping this will jog my memory next year and enable me to repeat my successes and steer clear of my failures.

On March 9th, I planted green beans, sugar snap peas, asparagus, onions, tomatoes, cilantro, basil, lettuce, carrots and peppers. I got a seed-potting mix and trays of peat moss mini pots. I loaded up the little pots with seed-potting mix and seeds. I watered them. Then I waited.

I have already made my first mistake. I didn’t label the mini-pots with what seeds I placed there. I have three sprouts now, but I’m not sure what they are. They are awfully cute though.

  1. Hey, I just started Square Foot Gardening. Built 3 4×4 beds, sprouted a bunch of seeds … and forgot to label some of my peat pots. I Googled “green bean seedlings” in an attempt to identify some of the sprouts, and here i am. Good luck vs the weeds!
