Green things are a coming!

So, luckily I think I may have a bit of a green thumb!

Today marks 6 weeks since I planted my seeds for tomatoes and peppers...

I think it also marks about 4 weeks since I planted seeds for:
basil, cilantro, carrots, lettuce and cucumbers

I also have onions growing too!

I am pretty excited that soon I can let them be outside during nice days to "harden" for a week and then I can plant them in my garden space/give away plants to friends and family!

I will admit that I didn't think almost everything would grow...but boy I am sure glad they did!

There is still a ways to go before any "goods" come off these little guys, but I am proud of my accomplishments...

Just check out the before and afters below!

Tomatoes and Peppers Day 1

Thought prep for the carrots, basil, cilantro, lettuce and cucumbers

The onions are planted...promise...

Tomatoes sprouted...maybe 3 weeks along

And finally the 6 weeks of tomatoes and peppers/4 weeks for everything else...

Tomatoes at top/peppers on bottom

tall tomatoes!

my poor lettuce (left) and blooming cucumbers (right)

cilantro (top) and basil (bottom)


crazy onions!

I can't wait to reap the benefits of this (hoping that they will continue to grow once they are transplanted outside!)...

So my green thumb works...who knew!
