Gardening for the Non-Gardener June Update
So, this weekend I decided to start over. I bought some large plastic containers from Walmart for $5 each and transfer the soil from the chest into those. I saved four of the tomato plants that looked like they might make it. I also replanted some of the pepper plants.
One of the things I learned is that using one large container doesn't necessarily mean more planting space than you would have in smaller containers. The soil I had in that one larger box filled four containers. So now, instead of just having tomatoes and peppers planted, I have those and two other kinds of seeds planted.
I ended up going back and getting more containers, so now I have six, each with something different planted in them. It's late to start a garden so I'm not sure what I'll end up with, but this is for fun. I'm learning as I go.
I also decided to plant the two avocado seeds that I had started in water months ago. I've had these two avocado seeds sitting in water for several months now and neither seemed to be doing great. I thought it was time to see if they were going to do anything.
I know from many videos that I've watched that avocado trees take years to mature and begin to fruit. So this is a very slow process for these little plants. I'll let them sit on my patio and keep them watered and hopefully they will both flourish.
