|These just popped through the soil on Sunday!|
Look how big they are now!
Since my beans didn't make it through the seedling process (something happened while I was away in NOLA and they died. Sad face.), I had planted new seeds just to see how if they would make it. I wasn't counting on it, but I was hoping for the best since freshly snapped green beans are the perfect summer taste. I was more than presently surprised when every seed I had sowed had planted popped through the soil last Sunday. And I was even more surprised when they had grown significantly all week long. I thinned them out yesterday to give the sturdiest seedlings room to grow, and, today, they seem to have gotten even bigger!
If they keep growing like this, we'll have A LOT of beans in a few weeks!
I also applied the first watering of Miracle-Gro, so we'll see how they like that. (But I didn't Miracle-Gro the herbs because they are far too tender for such fertilizer. They're leaves will quickly burn, so, if you're growing your own, be careful!)
I've definitely got a lot of weeding to do this weekend, and it's already become a thing I'll have to keep up with regularly. This soil not only grows plants well, but it certainly nourishes the weeds and grass as well!
