Growing

The seedlings that I planted awhile back are growing quite well so far! The lettuce, spinach and broccoli are in the process of being hardened of before being planted out in the garden, while the tomatoes, celery, and peppers continue to grow indoors underneath the lights . . .


54 tomato plants were started and 22 peppers, and the tomatoes had excellent germination and all of the peppers save a few came up . . .


Only a couple more weeks, and all of these will be hardened off as well and will be planted out in the vegetable garden!

  1. The plants look great. We have potatoes, onions and garlic(fall) in the dirt. Soon the others will come. I can't wait. Have a blessed day. "Isabella"

  4. They look wonderful, Sarah! Some days I wish for such a large and extensive vegetable garden, then recall all of the labor that is involved and quickly find contentment in what I have!

    By the way, in regard to your previous post, what a handsome rooster you have. His tail feathers are striking! Do they molt like other birds? I can imagine some fun crafts with feathers like that.

  5. Hi Sarah~your plants are growing so nicely and they look very healthy! My herbs are growing and that is basically what I concentrate on. I keep my lavender plant right near my bed so that if I can't sleep, I break off a leaf and smell it!! It helps me go to sleep. My husband is pretty good at growing veggies and he always has a strawberry garden in June. I live in town, so we have a very small backyard. You are blessed to live on a farm. Blessings in Jesus, Rose

  8. Thank you, Renee! A large garden is a lot of work . . . and some days I find myself beginning to think a smaller garden would be nice! :) Though, when it comes time for harvesting, I am thankful for the size it is and begin to wish that it was larger. Little by little we are learning time-saving techniques which has helped a lot. It will be really interesting to see how the season goes this year.

    He is a handsome rooster! Yes, chickens do molt, but so far, all of the molted feathers have been worn out looking and I have yet to see one of his tail feathers. There would be some fun crafts that one could make with the feathers, though!

  9. Thank you, Rose! I am glad to hear that your herbs are growing so well for you. Ah, lavender . . . it has such a pleasant and refreshing scent. Your room must smell delightful!

    Even though you live in town and have a small backyard, what a blessing that you are still able to have herbs, grow some vegetables and have a strawberry garden as well. It can be surprising how much can be grown in just a small space!
