Got some green beans going well.
the baggie has my tomato seeds who haven't sprouted yet after a week in the bag.
there's a 18inch florescent grow light on the wall next to the window to provide more light.
The tomato seeds may need a little more heat to germinate. I wouldnt worry about the light until they sprout, The beans do look good, giving me some ideas since it seems winter might have finally arrived.
Easybake, will you leave your beans inside during the whole process. I do not have much luck with green beans outside, as some critter always eats the whole plant with the beans. How about if I keep my beans in a planter on the Patio? Would that work?
Easybake - as long as there is no expected frost in your area until fall, then I would go ahead and set out your tomatoes.
behillman - I've had voles eat bean plants. They pull them down from their tunnels under the ground. I've read that they don't like blood meal. I'll have to see if this works when I grow beans again this year. Sorry I don't know anything about growing beans in a planter.
Edited - sorry, didn't mean to make most of this post bold!
last years average high during the summer here was about 108 last year.the 100 degree days started in may and most of the people i talked to about why my tomato's stopped producing was the heat.
So I will probably keep them outside till it starts getting hot.
My 1st tomato set. And the rest of the stuff that don't seem to be growing much at all.
There are Jalapenos and green peppers in the 5 gal buckets.Herbs and cherry tomato's in smaller brown pots that have not gotten any bigger in a month.
Wonder if my Cherry tomato's has some kind of problem.
2 months and they have not gotten any bigger. dont seem to matter if their inside or outside.
