Week 7: Transplanting Seedlings

The weather outside has been a bit gloomy, but it is warm enough that you can transplant seedlings outside. So that’s exactly what I did. It seemed like my seedlings were getting droopy in the tray, though flowers developed. The squash plants have two yellow flowers and the cucumber has one.

Droopy seedlings

The beauty of the Cow Pots is that you can plant them directly in the ground. For each seedling I dug a hole and buried the Cow Pot enough so that the seedling still stuck out.

A Squash Plant

Transplanted were: cucumbers, squash, roma & cherry tomatoes, hot pepper mix and bell peppers.

I know you must LOVE reading everything I have to say, but a picture is worth a thousand words so rather than tell you about what’s growing on…see for yourself:

Herbs:

Basil

Parsley

Cilantro

Seedlings in their new home!

 

Cucumbers by the early spring crops.

Don’t judge me by yet another crazy gardening outfit. Pepper doesn’t seem to mind.

In conclusion I leave you with the most exciting photo….My first salad!!!!
