Day 7

March 19, 2013 · Posted in Garden, Photography, Project 

Today is the 7th day. Tomorrow morning the chickens will get to try their new food source. And holy cow does it grow fast! In 3 days it has grown over 4 inches. Tomorrow morning I will weigh it and then I will know how much it has really grown. Here is the photo from this morning.


The cantaloupe is just poking up in the pots to the left side of the picture. Another exciting development. Last year the bugs got all but 2 melons. I am going to keep a closer eye on them this year and apply sevin when necessary, I really want a good melon harvest this year!

    yea, i guess. I’m sure it’s full of nasty chemicals, and it tends to “melt” when it gets wet. That was something H brought home from activity days. She hasn’t ever watered it so I doubt it’ll do anything but sit there til I get sick of it and toss it. If it were me I would have made newspaper soil containers with the kids and used those.
