The Veggies are Growing like Weeds!
With all the rain we've had last week - every day of the week we've had a soaking rain except Saturday! - I've loved watching all my green beans, beets + kohlrabi make leaps and bounds in their growth. I can't believe how quickly they've gone from sprouting last week to being inches tall (the green beans) + beautiful sprouts (beets + kohlrabi). There are definitely bare spots where seeds didn't germinate and you can see the "rows" I planted the seeds in all too nicely, haha.
Because I was pretty liberal with sprinkling seeds everywhere (to increase my germination rate of 2+ year old seeds), I have tried to gently transplant some seedlings to bare spots. As usual, many weren't too happy about the move but, again because of the rain, I'm excited that a handful seemed to transition without any sign of disturbance!
Even the tomatoes have grown INCHES this past week. When I planted them, they reached the first rung of their cages, but now can easily touch the third rung!
The only plant that I haven't noticed significant growth is the bell peppers. But at least they are looking very healthy + happy. That is all I wish for in my garden: healthy plants + heavy yields. :)
How is your garden growing? Have you had anything to harvest yet?
