Just a few updates from the garden. Below is a picture of my Folliar Feeding Experiment. As you can see, there is no discernable difference between the Sea Magic and the Spray N Grow pots, but both have more blooms than the regular control.

This is a Hardy Cinnamon Tree that I got from the city for Arbor Day. I sprayed it with Sea Magic and it already has new growth!

As you can see, in the 3 weeks since I last took pictures, everything is growing like crazy! These are the Kentucky Wonder Pole Beans, Dill on the left and Garden Salsa Peppers on the right.

Lettuce in the middle of this picture, behind that gigantic Oregano, and the Tomatoes are growing nicely into their cages. On the fence is some kind of Jasmine that Momma planted that is taking over that fence, but it has really pretty yellow flowers.

You can see the Rattlesnake Pole Beans growing up the fence. The tomatoes are doing well, and the ones on the left (Black Krims) already have tomatoes the sizes of gumballs on them. That little herb in the center is Catnip, and the only reason it isn't big like the rest of the herbs is because Rusty and Jude like to lay on the cinder blocks and face-plant into it. I'll have to get a picture of that.

My squash have gone CRAZY! Compare this to the picture of the seedlings from a few weeks ago. My trick? Other than the folliar feeding, I spike their soil with blood meal. They are heavy feeders and LOVE it.

Happy Growing, y'all!
