They're growing ever so slowly. But, I planted several cabbage seeds (in the ground) at the beginning of the season and only one survived. It has yet to make a head. So, I've learned by now that gardening is sort of hit or miss sometimes.
Because I read that cilantro and carrots were veggies that can be planted in July, I went ahead and tossed a few seeds in the side abandoned by the other seeds. It's hard to see the tiny seedlings, but there are several carrots coming up and, so far, one cilantro. I use a lot of cilantro, so I wish I could grow it continually.
I planted the same seeds in my regular garden on the same day and none of them have come up. I guess we could call the aquaponics a success when it comes to germination.
On another note, I'm so excited about this...
We hired a brick mason to rebuild the entryway columns that Tom and Jordan tore down.
He's doing a great job. One down, five to go.
It's 102 degrees out there today. I don't envy the brick layer's job.
