So I started my tomatoes almost two months ago and they look pathetic.
They haven’t grown since the first week or so…what’s going on?!? Last year by this time they were quadruple this size and way healthier looking!! Here’s what is different from last year:
1. Used seeds from last year that were kept in the fridge
2. Started in seed starting mix and never transplanted into soil
3. Temp might be cooler in the house this year?
4. Used biodegradable pots instead of plastic cups (I’m starting to think this plus the soil is the culprit!)
They’ve been watered frequently and kept under grow lights. What do you think happened? They aren’t even strong looking enough to transplant so we’re gonna have to buy plants. Maybe I’ll just say a prayer and stick them outside. I have nothing to lose at this point, right?
My sweet potatoes slips and bell peppers look a little better than the tomatoes, but not much:
On a more positive note, my strawberries are growing well and even have blooms! Hopefully we’ll be getting some berries this year:
The corn and potatoes are also growing fast:
What are you growing right now?
