I know it's way early for a lot of you northerners, but I started my Garden back in December. (I live in FL) This is the first year that I am attempting to grow vegetables on my own. My neighbor who lives across the street got me turned onto gardening with some of the stuff he grows. I kicked around the idea a few times but nothing developed. On a December trip to Lowe's I came across the Ferry Morse Seed Display and went to town picking out what I wanted. Here's what ended up in the basket... Also the quantity of each plant I ended up with Beefsteak Toms-4 Cherry Toms-4 Sweet Toms-3 Yellow Squash-3 Zucchini-3 Cucumber-3 Broccoli-4 Cauliflower-4 Cantaloupe-3 Watermelon-3 Cayenne Peppers-4 Serrano Peppers-4 Jalapeno Peppers-4 Habanero Peppers-4 Red/Green Peppers-4 Banana Peppers-4 Spinach-2 Romaine-4 Onions-4 Celery-3 Okra-2 Basil-2 Beans-2 Papaya-2 I also bought a few of the bonnie plants due to some concerns my neighbor had. I bought a Beefsteak, Cherry and Mr. Stripey Tomato and a Chocolate and Yellow Bell Pepper. I started everything off in Miracle Gro and Jungle Growth soil from Lowe's. I used blue solo cups to start the seeds in. I poked holes in the bottom with a hot nail. Soon, everything began sprouting. I was surprised and well pleased with the success I had had to begin with. After things started getting too big to be in the cups, I began buying black plastic potting containers from a local nursery. I continued to use the Miracle Gro and Jungle Growth while I transferred things to the next size containers. Things continued growing and started to outgrow the 1 gallon containers I transferred things to. My buddy who works for a landscape / maintenance company brought me a bunch of 2.5, 3, 5 and a couple 7 gallon plastic containers he had in his garage. At this point I decided that buying $7 bags of soil was going to get expensive quick. I went to the same local nursery and got a cubic yard of soil for $39. This went a lot further than I thought it would and thankfully God provided more free containers while I was at the nursery. While waiting for the gentleman who was helping me, I saw a large stack of containers sitting next to the dumpster. I asked if I could have them and the guy said they're all yours. After loading up and heading back, I returned home to find I needed every single container I had to transfer the soil into. My wife helped me a couple weeks ago transfer everything over to the final containers and things have continued to progress. Here are some pictures of things in there current state. I still have to transfer the 2nd set of peppers to their DIY containers I made. They have worked well so far with the set of tomatoes I put in them. Hopefully I will have more pictures to post as things progress. Thanks for looking. This is a view of everything This is my Cucumber, Squash, Zucchini Setup.
