Day 4: Looking Green
Quick update on the growth in our Eco Garden!
The garden is looking so green and healthy. We had a sprout in the area where we planted the peas (from seed), but it turned out to be a false alarm because there were similar sprouts throughout the garden. Probably something in the soil or possibly from the trees in the area. But this “false alarm” doesn’t take away from how well everyone seems to be settling into their new home.
Some of the tomatoes had flowers when we planted them, but no new flowers yet. The couple of “sad” looking brussel sprouts have come back though, their yellow leaves turning now a nice young green color.
We planted six Marigolds around the perimeter of the garden today as well. This will help keep the critters away, and are also recommended “companions” for the Tomatoes and other plants.
