Last week I didn’t have too much to update you on. This week we have beans!
After my direct sown green beans were totally eaten, I decided to start them in the house. These are my version of root trainers! It will be interesting to see how they do. I simply used my paper pot maker, but made them a lot longer to allow for long roots. Today they are being moved to the greenhouse. It will be harder to control the moisture in the long paper pots, but they will probably get too tall for the light in the house very quickly. The forecast this week is nice, so it’s perfect timing. I accidentally purchased bush beans, so I will be starting some more of these in three weeks for a continual harvest...maybe. To be truthful, I think I’ve burned myself out this year, and all before the growing season really starts!
I also managed to start some Zinnia last week. They are doing well and will probably go in the greenhouse today as well.
They haven’t all germinated yet, and I’ll give it a few more days and pull out what has germinated putting them in 3” pots. The flat I sowed them in is a freebie I picked up on Fuchsia Day at our local Fred Meyer a few weeks back! This was a great find because I’d been looking for these everywhere! They told me to take as many as I wanted and I ended up with 7 of them :)!
I will be posting a garden update as soon as I can, so stay tuned!
Be sure to check out Daphne’s seedling and harvest update at Daphne’s Dandelions. I’m sure she has some great babies for you to look at!
I hope all is well in your garden, and as usual...
