We are still in full swing of participating in our 2 challenges.
For my Virgin Harvest Challenge…..I am a little bummed that my attempt at starting seeds indoors went down in flames but I am still optimistic about all of my outdoor seed starts. They are thriving!
I plan on starting some more seeds indoors just for experiment since the length of time in our growing season is so short. But I figure the practice will be good for next year’s starts. I think the main issue I had was the fiber pots. I think it was impossible to keep them moist enough and I was constantly worrying about overwatering my little seedlings. I used a good quality seed start mix and also used heat mats for germination. Any suggestions? My next attempt will be in the recycled pots from all of my transplants. I was trying to avoid transplanting but if I want some summer veggies on the table, I have to go for it.
The good news is that we planted 2 fruit trees which was also a part of my Virgin Harvest Goal!
One peach tree and one apple tree. Hopefully we will see some harvest from these at the end of the growing season.
The girls are continuing in their garden challenge.
They have been busy planting in their personal containers and of course watering is always the best part.
I love how big sister is helping out her little sister!
I have even let them help me out in my bed…..radishes, beans, and okra!
It’s been so much fun for me in sharing this with them. I think they might be having some fun too!
This weekend we are expanding the garden and adding our chicken coop!
