Garden Update: Shopping Local Greenhouses vs. Home DepotFriday, June 19, 2015
Here's why: Gardening is my newfound passion, and, honestly, I've rarely felt this much joy from any hobby of mine.
So, there will be garden posts from time to time.
The leaves began to yellow and die on the zucchini plants, the blossoms that were forming kept falling off, the tomato leaves yellowed and had black spots all over them. I was sure it was all the heavy rain making the plants get sick. So I tried to dry them out, and eventually had to uproot them, and prepare the pots for new plants.
The picture on the right is the new seedlings. Pretty obvious which one’s healthy, right? (Hint: The ones from seed are darker green, and the leaves are way bigger. Also, they are bigger than the Home Depot plant, and they're only maybe 10 days of growth from sprouting. AMAZING!)
