This summer, I bought some planters, dirt, and seeds and had one of the kids from work help me start my own miniature potted garden. I've been keeping them on the very sunny stoop in front of my apartment and two out of my three plants seem to be growing well enough so far. I'm constantly afraid that I'm either over-watering them or not watering them enough. They haven't grown much since they sprouted out of the ground, so I'm thinking the huge rain storms we had two weeks ago might have caused some problem at root level, but my boyfriend says that as long as they're still green, they're probably fine. I guess I'll have to wait and see if they've bloomed or died when I get back from Europe. In the meantime, I've left them in my parents' garden to take advantage of their automated sprinkler system (must be nice).
this is supposed to be half basil, half parsley, but it looks like only the basil is growing
these will hopefully be heirloom tomatoes
I'm trying to measure their growth by how high over the edge of the planter they are,
but it's hard to tell. It looks like there's one that's sprouting really big and the others are kind of just hanging out at the same level they were before.
I'll track my progress when I get back and let you know how they turn out (if at all)!
