Vegetable Gardening, Part I

A couple weeks ago I started a few pole bean seeds and spinach seeds in peat pots and today was the perfect spring day to get them into real pots. This would be my third year in vegetable gardening and I am still learning a lot. I love watching the little tiny seeds grow into edible plants. The warmer Kentucky weather definitely jumped start the gardening season. This year I plan to grow pole beans, spinach, cherry tomato, sweet peppers, and some herbs.

The plan is to put long planters along the railing so the pole beans can climb up.

I started with these...

then ended up with these two weeks later.

The itsy bitsy ones are spinach and the tall ones are pole beans.

Jake was convinced that the spinach seedlings won't make it, so we sowed the spinach seeds again.

But I decided to do a little experiment myself with the spinach seedlings to see if they will actually survive.

The pole beans got new home.

And of course, I got my assistant near by who was there mainly for sunbathing then helping.
