Spreading my roots

Yes, the time has come to move on....into bigger pots, that is. My little baby seedlings have matured quite a bit.

I had to transfer them to larger plant trays because they outgrew the plant cells they were in because their roots need a little more room to grow.

When I was transferring my carrots, I noticed that the leaves on one of the plants had not completely released from the seed. It is in the shape of a perfect heart!

I see it as God's way of telling me He loves me so much. It really touched my heart.

You'll be happy to know that the seedlings are doing very well and growing just as they should. I am getting ready to begin my second planting of everything to extend my growing season throughout the summer. It's called succession planting. A simple explanation is that you start a second set of seeds of whatever you are growing two weeks after you plant your first set of seeds.

Planting this way ensures that you have a continuous crop to harvest throughout the summer season and, if you plan it right, into the fall.

Now that I am going to be selling at the Cheverly Community market, I want to be sure to have enough produce for my family and the market!

Well, this is all for now garden gals and guys!

Until next time....happy gardening!
