In March, I planted tomato, green pepper and cucumber seeds. I shared photos here when I started them and again when they grew into seedlings. Remember?
As outdoor planting time approached, I was concerned as to where I should transplant them. I finally came up with an idea. I bought 8 plastic planters and a couple bags of Miracle Grow Moisture Control Potting Mix. For about 3 weeks, my anxious plants, planters and potting mix have been on the screen porch waiting for me to take action.
Today, I transplanted the youngsters into the planters. Now we're getting to the good part. I placed the planters on these parallel bars on our old swing set, a perfect platform out of the reach of rabbits and chipmunks.
I have an idea for staking the plants as they grow taller. Time will tell how my platform garden works out. I have other concerns besides the rabbits and chipmunks, but I won't bore you with them right now.
I'll keep you posted, that is, if all goes well. If not, I'll probably be too frustrated for words.
