Container Garden 2016 - Seedlings and things

I am starting my container garden on time this year!! Even though I do wish I would have started even earlier, I have lots growing in my sun room right now!! Take a look...

Last year I was much better at keeping track of what I grew. This year I figured what the hell... Just plant it and see what happens!! 


The only thing about this approach that may be a concern is the plants needs for certain things. But I figure I could just re-pot them as they get bigger.


This last video was recorded May 22nd.

I started a ton of tomatoes and peppers this year!! I am not sure what I am going to do with them all as of yet. I do not want to grow anything in the backyard because they will not get much sun back there. I have trees and the house blocking the sun for majority of the day. 

The front yard gets sun from noon till about 8-9pm everyday, so I think that is much more sufficient. The front is where I grew all my pots last year and my flowers. I planted Tulip and Daffodil bulbs last year and nothing has come up yet. My Cosmo seeds were eaten by all the birds last year so I will be surprised if they come back on their own.

I am thinking of going ahead and planting out my tomatoes, cucumbers, and peppers in the front yard! Once they reach a certain size, of course. I will have to ammend the soil a lot because what is there is absolute trash! I have this huge ugly bush next to my porch that I would really love to chop down! I think it would look great with that gone and sunflowers and tomatoes in its place!

Sounds like a plan to me!

Meanwhile I will continue to grow everything that I have in the sun room and probably may have to get some CFL bulbs to supplement any that may not be getting enough light.
