The Garden: 30 Days In

Over the weekend the garden passed the thirty day mark and so far things are going well. The Spinach, Broccoli, Brussel Sprouts and Peppers are all still in the starter tray. I have transplanted the pole beans and snap peas into pots. We've had an abundance of sun over the last few days which is really helping to mature the plants. I usually water them in the early morning and a bit more in the early evening. Its not good to water at night in our humid climate because it can lead to mold and fungus attacking the plants.

I used some bamboo skewers to help give the peas some support, they have been sprouting little vines like crazy trying to find something to latch onto.

I had pinched back the original leaves on the bean plants and within a couple of days they had doubled the amount of leaves.
