Plants are growing as expected and beginning to outgrow my container. I finished the raised beds outside, just need to fill them with dirt and start transplanting some of the bean plants…probably later this week.

Transplanted the bean plants along with a couple zucchini plants two nights ago. Everything is looking good, including signs of pepper plants. Next steps, begin hardening off the plants and get the bed boxes finished.

2012 Garden (Day 7) – Tomatoes and Peppers?

Tagged , Leave a comment

Seedlings are coming up nicely, except for the tomatoes and peppers. I’m a little concerned, but it’s only been seven days, so they still have time. The seed packets gave a germination of 7-10 days…fingers crossed.
