Yes!! I am very happy that so far things are going well, and I shouldn't worry.
I am going to start keeping a little log of the things that happen so I can remember what's normal for next year
-Planted flowers for my mother.
-Made the ground ready for seeding, and made it look pretty.
-Planted my peas?
-Waited in agony for things to grow. Today I think I bought the rest of the seeds and planted them in the rest of the rows I had made.
-Planted the rest of everything and squished these red bugs on my cucumbers!
-Planted my hanging planter for the tomatoes. It fell after I put it up cause I was fiddling with it. But it's OK.
As of 5 days after planting my radishes on the 15th of May, I noticed they had popped up on the 20th.
As of May 24th or 25:
-I noticed the lettuce was coming up.
-Radishes are bigger.
-I didn't even notice any other growth until.....
As of the 26th:
-I noticed the squash had two sprouts out of the 6 seeds I planted. It's furry
-The lettuce was still as small-ish, but I couldn't definitely tell them between the weeds because they were clumping and SLIGHTLY LIGHTER GREENER THAN THE OTHER WEEDS
-The radishes had gotten considerably larger, and I thinned them to 1 per inch.
-The zucchini had sprouted once out of the 6 planted. They are also furry
-My tomato plant in the ground has stayed healthy after being abandoned in a plastic cup for a while. Seems like leaves are darker.
-The tomato in the hanging container is going well after falling when trying to put up and being left in its container too long after buying.
-The tomato in the pot is doing well and has some yellow whitish leaves. Snipped off shriveling lower bottom one, and new ones growing in place.
-Cantaloupes have no sprouts. Probably due to not enough sun... if they sprout I might move them to sunnier location.
-Little backups haven't sprouted yet but probably will in half a week or so. It took the biggest plants one and a half weeks to pop out. WATER MORE OFTEN.
-Cucumber plant doing well after being snowed on, and looks like it retaliated a little. New leaf growth.
-Basil leaves noticeably growing many new leaves.
-Lemon balm growing lots of new leaves. Slightly greener than older ones and shinier.
-Parsley growing small, but new leaves.
-Mint doing well but has some random yellow stripes probably from leaf breakage. Little part sticking out is actually growing.
-Not really doing much to keep cats away, but the stems are getting taller and doing well brother stepped on one, but it'll be fine.
[[[NOTE TO SELF: WATERING MAKES PLANTS GROW FAST. THE MORE OFTEN YOU DO IT THE FASTER THEY GROW. If I water just about every other day then i'll be good.
=?=?=?=?I'm not sure what pea sprouts look like! or carrots... and my onions look just like grass!=?=?=?=?
=I turned over the ground around the seedlings, and I'm going to sprinkle grass on them to keep the weeds down when they're bigger. Might not be so good tho, because there is a grass in my yard producing seeds...
=Sweet Basil smells WONDERFUL!
=Lemon Balm is LEMONY
=Mint is MINTY FRESH but would be cooler if were more pungent. Maybe try spearmint next year if it isn't already that. NOT SURE WHAT MINT IT IS.
=Parsley doesn't smell too much cause it isn't too pungent.
=Oh, and I did the turning over and thinning just tonight, with a flashlight and I caught two cats sneaking in the yard!
=And if cats poop in stuff. REMOVE POOP AS SOON AS POSSIBLE TO NOT POISON SOIL. Use pooper scooper.... Block off entrances.
THIS CONCLUDES MY FIRST LOG POST ON THE 26TH OF MAY
