Transparent Culture


The gardening saga continues. While relocating cabbage and cauliflower from biodegradable containers (that were disintegrating prematurely) to red solo cups we noticed that the roots of a few plants had grown through the containers and into the diffusion watering mat. It was time for all plants to be transferred to larger containers.

I started with all of the tomato plants that are featured in the YouTube video below. At this time thinning was completed. There is now only one tomato plant per planter. We decided to use clear solo cups that allow us to keep an eye on root growth.

Last frost is expected before Mother’s Day, which is May 9. We will transfer all plants that were grown indoors from seed on that day plus plant seeds for all produce that could not be grown inside.

Those items include several herbs, carrots, radish, peas, beans, onion, potato…I’m sure I’m missing something, but you get the idea.

Here’s R Dub with another exciting video…
