So here’s the plan!
This year’s garden is not going to be much different from last year’s. For two reasons: 1) It’s going to be a busy summer! 2) I didn’t feel like spending any money on new seeds, so I’m using what I already have.
I’ll have 2 cucumber trellises, two zucchini plants, and two plants of each of three tomato varieties. I’m going to try and squish in two red bell pepper plants, too! I’ve had mixed success with peppers in the past, so we’ll see how they do here in this garden plot.
I planted the pepper and tomato seeds on Saturday, 08 February 2014.
Just for my own record, there are:
- Four seeds in each pepper cup
- Three seeds in each Best Boy cup
- Two seeds in each Jelly Bean cup (the last of that seed packet)
- Three seeds in each Fourth of July cup
The cups are living on a tray balanced on a luggage rack in my craft room, where I can leave the blinds completely opened all day long for them to capture as much sunshine from the southern-exposure window as possible.
On the 15th, I was delighted to see cute, fuzzy, little Best Boy sprouts poking up in two of the cups! Can you spot one in the photo below?
On the 18th, I noted sprouts in the Jelly Bean cups, as well. (From left to right, in this photo, the cups are bell peppers, Jelly Bean, Best Boy, Fourth of July)
And one last photo from the 18th, because the sprouts look so cheerful in the sunlight, in spite of the snow on the ground outside!
