My little garden is growing away.
This week I added three new subjects to my little experimental garden.
I have grown celery from a celery stump before. The process is very simple as all you do is place the end in water and wait for new leaves to appear before planting it in your garden. My last attempt was not sucessful as my poor baby celery plant was baked to a crisp during a heat wave. Hopefully I will have better luck this year.
I also added a tomato by burying a slice of tomato in potting soil. Why yes, I did take potting soil to work with me in my lunch – doesn’t everyone?
As you can see in the first picture, I added another romaine lettuce base. We are now selling Romaine for $4.99 a head! I know the price will drop in the summer when the supply of lettuce increases, but still – that’s a lot of green for some greens!
The green onions I have sitting in water on my window sill are growing well. I am a little worried about the red onion sets as they are looking a little sad and droppy. I don’t know if I planted them without enough of the original root system or if they are suffering from a lack of sunlight. At work, they were exposed to light from the overhead florescents for more than 12 hours a day but here, at home, they are not getting a lot of light. They are in a south facing window but the sun has been a stranger this week. Maybe next week will be better.
