My First Time Container Gardening – Week One

I have an update here! It has been so difficult to wait a full week to do this. I mean that shows how excited I am about the plants ha-ha. I want to note quickly that I had to update the title of the first post since this is technically week one (since a week has passed from the planting date). Let’s see what has happened so far.

May 31 2016

I took this photo on Tuesday (May 31) because I was so excited that plants were coming up. I had to show mom. You can see the Tanya’s Pink Pods are just sprouting like no tomorrow. The front Thelma Sanders squash is starting to poke out of the dirt. You can just barley see it but the front Sugar Baby watermelon is starting to crack the surface. On to the pictures for today though.

I have moved my plants into the laundry room (it is kind of muggy out today) since this will closely match the amount of sun they will receive outside. Now the Tanya’s Pink Pods are just flourishing, I should have used a bigger peat pot though. I did think about this after. It’ll still work out though, I will just upgrade the size on the next batch.

On the left we have the ever so cute plant Sugar Baby watermelon and on the right there is the Thelma Sanders squash plant which seems to be going strong. These guys still have a ways to go before I am ready to transplant them. So far I have not seen any cracking on the other plants. Although I have not lost hope yet. I do believe I start the Ground Cherries wrong though. I will give them another four to five days before giving it a second shot. At this point I am just happy there has been some success.

I have some stuff on their way from Edible Antiques which I am insanely excited about. I also got the okay to do a review but I have been talking about Stacey’s operation enough already that you just need to go check out what she has and order!

I cant wait to see the growth and changes next week. I also cant wait to plant more vegetables.
