Our squash plants are thriving, and if they can just hang on a little longer, we can move them outside to one of the winter/protected gardens. The round pot has marigold seeds in it. Julia’s growing those. Flowers take longer, so we’re not concerned that nothing’s up there yet.
Our leeks and onions are up and looking good…
I’m so excited that we’re growing leeks. SO excited!
And over the weekend, Bill planted an assortment of tomatoes and peppers.
We’ve got them all stowed under the latest incarnation of our indoor greenhouse:
The previous versions were partial boxes with wire cages and bird netting protecting the seedlings from the cats, but getting at the plants was always a huge pain, because we’d have to untangle the bird netting from the wire in order to get at the plants for any reason.
With this version we’ve got the plants and their lights draped with plain old 5 mil plastic, which is anchored in place with empty paint cans, clamps, and a piece of firewood. No danger of any wire scratching our hands, and it’s much easier to get at the plants when we need to.
