Since I have been off of work for a few days with shingles, I have had plenty of time to obsess over my plants. I could write a whole new post on the shingles experience. I will just say that I have it on my face. It hurts. I’m on LOTS of medication. I’m taking handfuls of drugs per day. It is not pleasant in any way.
As I mentioned in past posts, I am making my first attempt at growing my own veggies. I am growing them from seeds. So, the first hurdle to get over is getting the seeds to germinate. Here’s where I am.
Peas: 11 of 12 seeds planted have germinated. In fact the plants are so large, I had to transplant them out side. They were out growing their little peat pots. The peas are looking good since their transplant.
Tomatoes: 6 of 16 seeds planted have germinated. Unfortunately, my cats ate two of my seedlings. I’m crossing my fingers that more of the seeds germinate.
Peppers: 4 of 16 seeds planted have germinated. I’m not totally certain what I am seeing are peppers and not onions. So, for now these I’m calling these seedlings peppers.
Green Beans: 1 of 12 seeds planted have germinated. I can see disturbance in a few other been pots. I’m pretty sure more will come up shortly.
Unidentified: I have two seedlings that I can’t identify. More on those in future posts.
So, I haven’t seen any onions, cilantro, basil, lettuce, spinach or carrots yet. I’m just excited that I have a few plants. I really have no idea what I’m doing.
