Gardening Journey ~ Container/Rooftop Progress
GREENS! Here's a look at our lettuces, leafy greens, even some Kale (the one smack-dab in the middle). ALL of the greenery has sprouted. Some more advanced than others but that is expected because of the maturity lengths being different. We are FOR SURE going to have to thin out and space the one on the left...that's the Rosalita Lettuce. Those grow into 'heads'. The others are more loose and leafy. The Kale is already getting their 'second leaves/sprouts' so that's pretty neat.
We have the Broccoli in a 1 and a half gallon bucket. Some of you already read on previous posts that we are reusing CD Jewel Case Holders for the lettuces that are pictured above.
We have another bucket like this one - but it's red - that contains the carrots we are trying to grow from seed, too!
I was beginning to wonder if we got 'duds' on the carrots until we came in yesterday and saw these wonderful sprouts! Aren't they awesome!
I can't wait to see what they all do next! I think that is part of my problem...PATIENCE. I need more Patience!
