    whatsup guys? i planted some seeds, and they all came up over memorial day weekend (5/27). this means they are a week old today, and have just began their vegetative phase!
    i have 4 beefsteak tomato sprouts, 3 cherry tomatoes (2 sprouts, 1 mature plant) 1 jalapeno pepper (only plant that i didnt start from seed), 2 basils, 2 cilantros and 1 dill.
    i also have 5 annual flower bulbs in some shallow containers for my mom.
    i made a strong soil mix, so i shouldnt have to feed for some time.
    first the beefsteak tomato sprouts. one of them looks sick so i may replace it with the extra sprout in pic #1

  4. Everything looks good, brother I'm interested to see how things progress, bless!
  5. Is the mature one just one plant? It puts mine to shame

    thank you rasbubble! glad to have you along.
    and yes yurigadaisukida, its one plant, but its been alive for a some time now. i started it indoors a couple months ago, and its been transplanted about 2 times. i wish i gave it a cage to grow into, but its still doing well. im guessing its going to droop onto the deck when it gets even bigger.
    the sprouts that are starting in the real sun will do even better. i want to make a raised bed next year, but theres no good spots on my parents property that has all day sun besides the deck, which is where i have the pots now.
    remember, as babies they like good textured soil (to make it easy for their roots to expand into), and as adults they like supplemented food.
    watering the soil makes it easier for the roots to grow as well, so make sure youre soaking the soil, and then letting it dry out for a day or two before watering again.
  7. For me I have to water every day :(

    120 dry heat.

    Plants get mad at me if I even miss one day

    Peppers and tomatoes are great and easy to grow and need little maintenance. With suggestions on what else to should grow whatever you enjoy eating. I've enjoyed growing cucumbers and strawberries in the past. Try strawberries! It's a great fruit to grow and I get a few ripe strawberries almost everyday!
    Oh and BTW, thanks for noticing the Incubus head from the SCIENCE Most people just think it's a funny face, haha.

    thanks! i find that the soil is the most important factor. a lot of my plants have stress marks, and one of them is not really growing well. they all began flowering this week.

    4 beefsteaks. as you can see somethings wrong with one. theres more than enough food in the soil, and i fed it on top of that, but its roots just arent working right [​IMG]
