Companion planting my seedlings.

March 8, 2012

Nightshades need nitrogen. It’s a thing. Peas, lentils, and beans fix nitrogen (not like a mechanic. they take it from the surrounding environment and make more complex molecules with it). I’m not going to put my tomatillos out until at least june, and if I start peas now-ish they should be finished by mid june.

As of yesterday the little guy was starting to make  go of it.

As of this morning dude was putting out a feeler and I got out the twine. I’m hoping that I can get a reasonable amount of growth out these guys from such a small container. They’re blue podded peas, I’m not sure if this is actually the same strain as purple podded peas but there is a blush of purple on the feeler and in the veins of the leaves.

Slowly getting towards being able to eat things from my windowsills and we’re a little less than a month into this whole experiment.
