Bed 3 has decided that it doesn’t want to germinate seeds quite as well as bed 1 or 2. Hmmm… not sure why that is. Part of that is broccoli. So far the germination rate on both types of broccoli that I planted has not been great. I need to do a little research on that. I noted a couple of small mushrooms in the bed. I don’t know if that matters, but I like to try and observe what is going on and try and pick up on any hints that might be there. I think mushrooms like acidic soil. Maybe a pH issue? I’ll look into it. In any case, here are a few pictures.
The biggest of the broccoli.
Chinese cabbage. Come on little buddy.
An update on the Bok Choy from bed 1.
Red Russian kale update.
Little carrots popping up in Bed 4. I little better spacing on these guys than we had last year.
You have to look close on this one but there should be 8 little heads of lettuce starting. This is a different variety of head lettuce than our traditional ice berg that is in bed 2.
As much as I want to, I can’t make any of these things grow. I can yell, I can beg, but I just can’t make them grow any faster than God designed them to. Sure I could go buy them the latest artificial fertilizer that might make them perk up and look pretty, maybe even go through a little growth spurt, but that wouldn’t be building the roots and the soil that I’d really like to see. These things take time, constant love, support, encouragement, and teaching. Eventually they will grow into the design that God has for them. Not my design. Not my dreams. But their designer’s dreams. He knows what they need. As he’s growing his plants he’s also teaching their gardener. I just wish this gardener had more wisdom.
Are we still talking plants?
Thanks for checking out the pictures. God bless.
