Warning, image heavy!
I recently got really into gardening. I have a rooftop terrace, so I have a big roof paradise planned. So far, it’s still well in development. I haven’t even gotten everything out of their jiffy pots yet but it’s well on its way. I thought I’d share some pics of my plant babies!
Tomatoes: I have them in buckets right now, which I plan to decorate to make cuter:
More baby tomatoes:
Sprouting Bachelor Buttons:
The tomatoes grew really well. I planted 12 Jiffy Pots with the idea that only half of them may grow (I’ve never grown them from seed before), and put 2 seeds in each pot. Almost every single seed sprouted. I’ve given several away already but am looking for homes for more. I had a few runts as well that I’m hoping to catch up. I figure if I have an excess of tomatoes I can give some to charity or something. If I get enough to make sauce I’ll post pics and recipes!
The key is to water everything daily. Tomatoes also like to have warm roots, which is why I didn’t put them in terra cotta pots.
