☼ Grow your own damn Food! ☼

. . . . . . . . . .
These weekly posts are to share the progress of our garden; sharing photos and our gardening experiments and will hopefully inspire you to grow your own garden too! :)

What did we get up to this week? 
Well, our kale has come up and looking healthy and growing quickly--plus they All came up so we'll have to thin them out soon. The radishes and mustard greens are getting bigger. Basically everything in our little outdoor greenhouse has been doing super awesome. Everything else is a bit slow. Although we do have tinie tiny lettuce popping up as well.

We planted some zucchini and cucumber starts this week as well. We soaked the seeds for about an hour in organic fertilizer solution and then planted them to stay inside in the greenhouse to start. Oh and one watermelon. Cory is very determined to get watermelon this year. 

The other seedlings are steadily growing and we had to thin them out today--which I feel guilty doing, I feel like I'm killing a perfectly happy plant :o. In other killing news, the aphids are still being problematic so Cory has been getting rid of them every couple days to keep them from spreading. I can't quite believe we already have an aphid problem and the plants aren't even outside yet! But otherwise, healthy. ;) 

There are also some pretty flower coming up in our front garden beds, because, well, that used to be a giant garden bed so we can expect this even after turning the soil and whatnot. They're pretty and mostly in the corners so far so I think we'll be keeping the ones that have come up so far.

That's all this week! ;)

  1. everything is looking awesome! so cool you guys have a greenhouse. I love the kale & giant red mustard!

    I always cut off the root and eat the thinned out seedlings (same concept as indoor grown micro greens) that way I don't feel so bad :)
