Tomatoes, Peppers, Basil, Pumpkin, Lavender, and Sunflowers

planting 12

This Saturday we finally put the tomato, pepper, and pumpkin seedlings(courtesy of Deb Kardon-Brown and Uma) in the ground. We also bought and planted sunflowers, sweet basil, and lavender and installed tomato cages thanks to the money raised from the Swarthmore Funfair.

Upon recommendation from a helpful Home Depot employee, we added this Humus and Manure mixture to the tomato plot that’s supposed to make the plants really big. We’ll see how that works out.

We also set up a watering schedule and the kids partnered up to sign up for each day of the week.
