I noticed some bulging happening in the pumpkin baggie.
It was a little out of control, and led to me going through all of the baggies and separating out some of the good seedlings. But the pumpkins, oh, oh the pumpkins!
I took them out of their baggie and decided to try an experiment. I took 3 of the seedlings and put the in a shot glass as a sort of hydroponic thing. The other 2 I left in the Baggie but kept their heads out, but zipped up the rest so it kept some of the “greenhouse” effect. I was really wanting to see if one way would do anything different than the other way.
That was yesterday afternoon. I thought it was a good plan, and I was pretty interested to see how it would be different. This afternoon, I noticed something pretty startling.
After 24 hours, my little seedlings still in the Baggie had grown quite a bit! Like… A scary lot! It was over 6 inches. Way bigger than its counterparts in the shot glass. Although, I do like the look of the intermingled roots. It’s really cool to look at.
In other news, nothing has really gotten done on the actual bed, but I thought I would show you what it looks like.
Clever, no? I am really hoping that over the weekend I will be able to get the dirt to go in the garden, but the hubby has been sick, so fingers crossed!
Tomorrow, I plan to tell you about my cook day today. 12 meals in my freezer and I only had to spend about $55 and 4 hours.
Bit of advice though, when planning a cook day that requires 12 zipper bags… Make sure you have more than 4! Ugh.
