My new babies!

My okra are now about 4" tall, my lavender is nearly 3" tall, my cilantro got too cold & didn't make it, but my chards are growing nicely, too! They're about the same size as my lavender. I figured out the math on how to plan my sunflowers & purple coneflowers so they'll sprout & bloom around the same 2 weeks as each other. Its working out great, but now all I need is my ground to dry up & get nice weather so I can plant into the ground!!

Restarting my garden

Well, I had to replant everything. I think my mini-green houses got too cold in the window, so I replanted things & they're almost all sprouted. I think only 2 things haven't. So far, I planted okra, iceberg lettuce, 2 types of hot peppers, Swiss chard, and lavender. This coming week, I plan on planting some sunflowers, coneflowers, eggplant, pole green beans, squash & cucumbers for my vertical garden, and I'll be planting alot of tomato plants in pots, and 3 in the ground. So far everything is going according to plan, again. I found 2 2X2's around the shed and I'm going to use them (I have to buy it, but I'm going to use chicken wire to hold up my plants). I'm sure it'll work out. I'm still planing on the tepee's for my tomatoes I'm staking in the ground. So I'll be busy this summer, plus, I may help my sister with a couple raised beds for herself, but we'll see! Happy planting!
