Garden Update – March 14, 2011

Lettuce and Spinach sprouts are coming up from seed that I just scattered on the gravel growbed.  I figure about half of the seed turned into seedlings.  This is the easiest planting I’ve ever done!  Zero digging, zero watering, just scatter seed and walk away.

The tomato seedlings are growing strong since I re-potted them into new, larger newspaper pots.  They are getting so big I’m going to have to do something with them soon, because I’m out of room under my grow lights, and they are really sucking up some water now.

This evening, I planted a few green beans, cilantro, basil, marigold, cosmos flower in the asparagus bed, then I mixed up some homemade fertilizer and applied it on all the raised beds.
