Happy Earth Day!

How are YOU celebrating Earth Day?

Unfortunately, I don't have an outside garden patch of my own. But I AM able to leave pots out in the already existing garden at the back of my building.

So one day, I was cutting up a pepper, and decided to try to spawn my own plants from seed. So I potted them in a can and placed it near my aerogarden's UV light. About a week or two later, I had sprouts!
I then transferred the sprouts to large pots to place outside. I hoped the transfer wouldn't damage the sprouts' tiny delicate roots. But it's been a few days now, and they seem to be doing great! I can't wait to be able to harvest my own peppers!
And since I feel so encouraged by this success so far, I've planted some tomato seeds in the can, so hopefully I'll have the same luck!
