Kitchen Garden Update

A very short post today (but hey, at least there’s a post, right?). I wanted to give you guys a small update on how my kitchen garden is doing.
I’ve already had to move several plants from the little cardboard pots to a bigger pot. Space in my window is limited, so I hope the weather will pick up soon so I’ll be able to move some plants outside.

The arugula was the first to sprout and also the first to need a bigger space. I had a long planter in the backyard that I wasn’t using for anything, so I moved it to the window and reserved about one third for the arugula. Today I also got to move the dandelion salad and the spinach to the planter. Since these are crops that keep on giving for a long time, I might not move them outside at all. It’ll be convenient having them so close to the kitchen so you can just take whatever you need at the moment.

This planter had also been abandoned in the back yard after I had to quit my last kitchen garden. I went to the local DIY store and got a pretty shelf holder, which now functions as hanging planter holder! I don’t have any straw yet, but I think there’s some in the attic. They won’t need it for a while, but I like to be prepared. I’m not letting those strawberries go to waste!

Most of the seeds have sprouted except for the bell peppers and two crops I sowed later on. I’m not sure what to do with the next crops that’ll have to be potted. I just don’t know where to put them until they can go outside. I’m sure I’ll figure something out though. I’ll keep you guys posted!
