The zucchini monsters were outgrowing the starter greenhouse quickly!
The beef and cherry tomatoes are also coming along nicely. By Sunday the Zucchini were scraping along the roof of the greenhouse though, so I knew I needed to replant them.
Now, I’m not a morning person. I can’t brain before three cups of tea or other caffeinated beverage. Times before 10:00 AM are not valid times for me.
So can somebody explain to me why my brain thought it was a good idea to get up at 6:30 and tell me “You know, now would be a good time to get some replanting done”?
Urgh. Too tired to argue with my brain at this time, I climbed out of bed. Some dirt and planter pots later…
That starter pot is perfect for getting the roots out of, since it has airholes in the bottom. Just poke up through them and pull out the cone of dirt and roots. The ground does get a bit loose though. I think the zucchini might have wanted a wider base, since they started to spread out their roots into each other’s pots.
Anyway, now the babies are repotted. Let’s hope they survive over easter. Will have to make them ride shotgun with me in the car when we go visit family.
Do they look OK? We’ll see how they’re doing when I get home…
