Within the past two weeks I have tried two different “projects” for growing vegetables in a different way.
The first was my potatoes which I planted in reusable shopping bags instead of buying expensive grow pots.
|Day one right after they were planted (4/29/12)|
|Ten days later, it’s hard to see but they’re sprouting.|
|Small sprout, but a sprout none the less 🙂|
The second was my up cycled seed starters in which I used something that would have been garbage if it wasn’t for me. As you can see after just a few days they were doing remarkably well. I posted the original blog about the seed starters on May 6th.
|Pretty happy living by my kitchen window 5/09/12).|
|May 12, 2012 Six days after I planted them.|
I find it hard to explain the excitement when I found both of these projects to be turning out very successful. I have had a garden every year for the last little while, and it was new for me to jump into this the way I did this year. I wanted to grow more, but do it in a way that I found to be sustainable and less wasteful. Well, I’m on my way and so excited with the small but measurable results so far.
