As of my last post one of my Cassabananas died. It was so sad, but I still have two left. The two seem strong so I'm hoping to plant both of them in my garden this year.
I'm giving the African Horned Melon to the little boy next door, once it has at least a few true leaves. Right now it just has the seed leaves and one true leaf is poking out.
I took the house down when we had two hot days in a row. Then immediately it got cold. Well, cold for here, because it's in the 60s. I know that some other parts of the country (like where my mother lives) its still snowing.
The sunflowers are about 3 feet high. The peas I planted to grow on them have all been eaten by something except for one. Such is what happens when you try to grow organic!
I planted the ground cherry that I received and I have five of the tiniest seedlings growing in my bedroom seedling nursery. I hope that I get one to make it. I'm not sure if it's an Aunt Molly variety because it was a trade. I hope so because I've read that these are the tastiest.
The tomatoes and peppers are both going strong. They aren't big enough to plant outside yet, but I'll keep you posted. I'll post some photos soon.
Oh, and I also planted a dragon tongue bean which has sprouted. It's kind of scarey looking as a sprout. I can't wait to see what it is going to look like as a plant!
The hyacinth bean I planted (3 of them) seem to be rotting instead of growing, but I'll keep my fingers crossed.
Oh, and I transplanted several plants out of the garden into red cups. I think that one is a cucumber, which is good because none of my cucumbers are growing that I planted this year. And then there are two mystery plants. I hope that they are eggplant, but no way to tell. I'll post photos later.
Or at least I hope I can post photos....
