Behold, my beautiful, healthy baby radish. The plants in my apartment are thriving, some perhaps a bit too much as I am now wondering whether I will be forced to remove my couch to make space for grow racks.
I have not replanted my tiny vegetables yet - that day will come soon - but I am really happy I have managed to get them past the wee sprout stage without multiple deaths. Plants are hardy little things, but early on I thought I killed at least three of them by allowing more than a hair-thin stream of water to hit them shortly after they sprouted. One of the lettuce plants is still growing at a very sad angle - but it is alive.
The wildest part is the sub-irrigated bucket has not required watering since we planted it more than a month ago. Highly recomended for anyone looking to grow plants but doesn't have the time to fuss over them.
I must admit I have been thinning out the top by pulling out the occassional leaf or two.
Baby lettuce, not a surprise, is delicious.
