Our apartment garden has been doing pretty well! Everything sprouted for us 1-2 weeks after we planted them. For some reason, the bell peppers were the last ones to sprout, but now they are thriving so I am happy about that. On the other side, the spinach sprouted quickly, but now seems to be struggling a bit. Sometimes when we water them the little sprouts fall down and then it is a struggle for them to get back up…hopefully they will get stronger with time.
This afternoon, I’m off to Miami to celebrate one of my best friend’s birthdays! So so excited for sunny weather and a girls weekend with these lovely ladies. GC is going to be home and will take care of our beautiful apartment garden while I’m gone.
Not sure if we’ve been over watering them, so we are trying to just do a light spritzing every day until the soil dries about a bit more.
Anyways, once the plant babies were tall enough (and strong enough) we had to replant them from the little sprouting containers into the pots we bought. We actually kept them in the sprouting containers and buried them in the dirt. Theoretically the sprouting containers will dissolve into the soil.
I cut the the little pots so the plants would have more room to grow. You probably could keep them all together but we decided to have some fun with it and figured, why not.
Our sage has grown the most so far! I had no idea it would grow so tall so quickly. The leaves are really cute and don’t look like the other leaves we have. They’re basically little circles and look very soft to the touch. The chives are kind of stringy and very thin though–not sure what to do about that.
Last night, I decided to plant a few more spinach, cilantro, and chives seeds since a lot of their growth has petered out. I also started to thin a few of the more hardy ones down to one sprout per cube, which I read is what you want to do.
I still love my succulents–these guys are pretty hardy. They seem to be doing very well and some of the leaves are taking root, which means even more succulents to come. I’ll keep you posted as our little plants grow this month–hopefully they become stronger and hardier. We’ve been putting them outside for longer and longer amounts of time, and soon they should be able to transition to full time patio living. Have a happy Thursday!
