My First Time Container Gardening – Week Two

I know this post is a day late but it has been raining and gloomy. I apparently just did not feel like posting. The plants seem to be doing great. Hopefully I can get some nice weather this weekend because these beans need to get outside.

All four of the Tanya’s Pink Pods are doing great. They are very hardy and no week spots with very strong leaves.

A close up you can see the main leaves are coming in. I was hoping for these to be out already but they’ve exceed the peat pot. They need more room to keep flourishing.

The Ground Cherries are so tiny, these plants may not make it for the gardening season. I really was not expecting them to look like tiny sprouts. So I am not sure what to think at this point. I am just happy that they did come up.

Both Sugar Baby watermelons are up and seem to be slow growing compared to the beans and squash. Maybe I am just impatient. However they seem to be strong.

Last the Thelma Sanders squash. The second seed did not germinate; I was looking forward to this one but one is better than none. Plant is doing great and I can see the second set of leaves beginning to sprout. Maybe next weekend I can have this one outside.

Now I received my order from Edible Antiques and I am so excited for them (I will post a review early next week). I was hoping to have them planted but my house has cooled down due to the weather. I would like it to warm back up to 71F before they are started. There are two varieties of lettuce and two varieties of tomatoes. I may end up sharing quite a bit of this stuff if I do actually yield any harvests.

I also want to note that I am not feeling to hot about these peat pots I have been using. I will finish the year off with them but need to find an alternative for next year. I really do not want to use plastic but I may be able to find some to recycle from family and friends.
