Boy, time flies when you're having fun, or when you're slammed busy. Sorry that I haven't posted in a while. I now I should have mentioned I was taking a hiatus, but to be honest, I didn't know I was. Time just slipped away from me and I didn't have much to talk about anyway. So I appologize for that, and making my last post all about non-gardening crap.
Actually, I really shouldn't be posting right now because I haven't really been gardening much lately either. Between company coming into town and the house being a pig sty and the preschool auction, we've been insanely busy. Thankfully the auction's over, but there's still the house to clean. With two kids, it's always an uphill battle.
That said, I do have some garden-related stuff to talk about. Well, mostly to show you. First off, look at how my soil blocks are doing under the lights...
Those tall things near the fan, those are my cukes. Here's a close-up.
Can you see the light green on the leaves? I'm not worried about it apparently it only matters if it's the first true leaves.
The funny thing is, that some of my blocks I still can't tell what they are, but these, it's obvious. Look at my little Red Sails lettuce sprouting. Hehe, if I don't get these into the ground soon, I'll be harvesting indoor lettuce, hehe.
Lastly, here are my tomato seedlings. The ones next to the water bottle are mine that I started about two weeks before the ones for our teacher. All are doing well, but just like my good buddy EG, some varieties are clearly doing better than others. Funny that one of the scrawnier ones is a very early producer.
Mine I really need to pot up, but I don't really have room for the bigger pots. What a conundrum, as Alan Greenspan used to say.
Any thoughts for my space issues? Maybe start hardening off some of the soil blocks? Maybe remove the big tomatoes from the lights and let them hang out in the south facing window? They're about the size when I got them from Territorial last year and had them in that window.
Anyway, I'm utterly exhausted from a very long day running around for the auction. Hope you had a great day in the garden!
