Patience is a virtue.
When it comes to plants, being patience pays off.
The peppers have sprouted!
They look great and so very healthy.
Most of them were root-bound which is great for replanting!
The rubric has changed… again.
We added squash to our hydro-tent as an experiment. We just wanted to see how it would do, plus it was an extra that grew and it wouldn’t be right to just put it out in the cold, plus we had some duds so we had the room.
A new look at the plants and how they have grown for week 2 (don’t be alarmed about the white powder on top of the baskets. It’s Diatomaceous Earth which is used simply as a precautionary preemptive measure)…
