Comparing Weeks 3 and 4 Progress

Standard

Over the course of week 3 and 4, a foliar mist has been added to the overall regimen.

There have been quite a few growth changes over the course of the few weeks.

The snap peas are climbing the trellis rapidly so we have had to re-direct them several times. The direct comparison is very apparent between the two pictures:

 

 

 

 

 

 

With respect to the bush rojas beans, over the course of weeks 3 and 4, there are several beans which have sprouted and the plant has almost doubled in size:

The habaneros are slow going, but seem to be regardless of whether they are indoors or outdoors.  Last year, the peppers were very small in the hydroponic tent but they seemed to be super spicy, moreso than the peppers that we were used to harvesting from the outdoor garden.

The cucumbers have finally started to develop feelers of their own and have also started to grow some flowers.  Once they get bigger and have more flowers, I will be able to add a section on flowers and indoor plant pollination which gets really tricky with some plants such as the cucumbers and the tomatoes.

We have two types of bell peppers in the garden.  Monster bell and giant bell.  Both of which are showing about the same amount of growth during the two weeks, seen below…

The squash plant that was a volunteer that we threw in the tent just to see what would happen is definitely flourishing!

There are two type of tomato in the garden.  We have noticed, with respect to the tomato plants, that the tomatoes that are to produce larger tomatoes, they seem to not do quite as well as the cherry tomatoes.  This is the same problem that we had last year when trying to grow tomatoes as well.

The Cherry tomato have flowers on them; however, as wonderful as it is, I had to prune some of those branches off of the plant because they were sucking energy from the plant without any benefit as they were lower branches.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Opal Basil has grown faster in the hydroponic tent than in the soil tent but does not seem to be as aromatic as in the soil tent.

Last but not least, the lettuce box.  I harvested the lettuce from it because it was beginning to bolt.  We will see if any of them grow back and if not, I will plant more.  They grow really fast.
