It has officially been one month, one week and four days since I began my small garden outside my backdoor. Unfortunately, I did not realize how long it takes for tiny seedlings to gestate and grow. So for the past 45 days, I would go outside, study the wet dirt I just watered, and look for any signs of new plant life. Let me be the first to say on this blog of mine that "patience is a virtue." No, really. Seriously.
However, I am happy to report that there IS progress!!! Albeit small, I'm looking forward to the next month and to widening the garden to include some tomatoes, which I hear grow like crazy!! Take a look at the pics!!
The next couple of pictures prove this supposed "theory" of photosynthesis... Apparently you really do need plenty of sun to grow plants, even those that CLAIM they don't need much sunlight or any direct sunlight at all... I'm still trying with this other dwarfed and darker side of the garden. We were hoping to see some lilies and strawberries, and instead we see small shoots of something. We aren't sure what yet though... hopefully within the next month we'll know whether or not to pull these small shoots because they are weeds or whether to keep talking to them nicely and hope for warmer and brighter days with more direct sunlight in this dark patch...
No matter what, this project has been quite fun and interesting. Thanks to my boyfriend who inspired this, I'm going to keep trying to farm in my little concrete jungle. Stay tuned for next month's update!!
