My first Herb/Veggie Garden
So, I started a garden a couple weeks ago. I bought a 72 seed started green house, and 6 packs of seeds. I got:
Parsley, basil, cucumbers, tomatoes, oregano, and rosemary.
I planted twelve starter thingys each.
The cucumbers started first about 4 days in. Two little leaves each at first :) and now, its a total of 8 plants sprouted and replanted some of them are like 3' long already!
7 days in the basil started, it staying closer to the oil than the cucumbers, and taking longer to come up, but its making progress day by day :)
At 10 days the parsley started, and some of them are almost ready to re-pot :) maybe an inch tall today, so maybe tomorrow I can replant them.
The oregano, tomato and rosemary are going to take a bit longer, but im excited :) My fiance is very annoyed with how often I've been checking on them (once I the morning, once at lunch, and a couple times in the afternoons) but there seems like theres something new every time I look!
I've got them potted in miracle grow mixed with Annie poo, and a layer of miracle grow on top to keep the smell from annoying my neighbors when its hot XD the cucumbers are going to have to be re-potted soon, and it was my understanding I needed some kind of standing chicken wire for them? I know i'll need something for the tomatoes to climb, and ill have to trim the rosemary, but is there anything special for basil or the others?
Ill have pictures tomorrow, just gotta remember my camera cord!
