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!

Yep, sprouts can get very big. The same thing holds true with some of your dark leafy greens. I gave some of them away, and peoples eyes were like saucers when they saw how big some of the leaves were.ReplyDelete
My other co-worker keeps saying 'I think we did too much of the lettuce'...I don't think he realizes how many greens and lettuces I can go thru! LOLDelete
Impressive garden so far, wow on the sprouts! You can never have enough greens, thanks goodness they grow fast!ReplyDelete
I'm getting nervous about that Rosalita, tho! Might have to move on that SOON!Delete
How inspiring your gardening efforts are! You'll be harvesting fresh produce before you know it! Thank you for sharing your garden on the Healthy, Happy, Green & Natural Blog Hop!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much! We are a little nervous about the Rosalita and need to transplant soon! We hope it's not too late! Also...we are thinking of thinning out some of the other lettuces as well. AND...we would like to start our 2nd flight of seeds this week...fingers crossed!!!Delete
