This week has been fairly uneventful in the garden. Since last week's blog post, one of the boxes that had peppers and lettuce in it was deemed "not doing anything", so I replanted it with a different lettuce and dill instead of peppers. It's doing pretty good so far.
The original lettuce is doing great and has nice big leaves on it. It's not looking very vibrantly green though, so Seth suggested putting it outside while we're in the office so it gets more sun.
The radish box is doing good, but I fear I may have overwatered it so I'm letting it rest for a while before watering it again. I'm still hoping for them to be on course for picking late next week.
All of the other plants are doing well, but one weird situation has happened with our mint plant box. The plants are big and doing great, but the leaves are fuzzy. Seth and Erin have come to the conclusion that there's a good chance those are going to be cucumber plants instead of mint, which is both cool for when we have salads or want to try making pickles, but bad for tea-making plans. Oh well - plenty of other options for that. The lemon and cinnamon basil plants are smelling a bit more fragrant and as we find random containers, we're making more small additions to the garden every day.
Aside from that, it's all about making sure plants don't get too wet or too dry, and having the patience to wait for them to grow.
