Week 5: Seedlings

We're half way through week five. Not much to report — they look pretty much the same as last week. The seedling leaves from the squash and zucchini plant got yellowy brown, so I cut them off. They look much happier since I did that. Hopefully that's normal... hmm.

I think it might be time to fertilize, but I'm not sure what kind of fertilizer to buy. Suggestions? Mom, I think I might be game for a worm farm/composter in a few months. What kind do you recommend? Didn't you say there are some that are very small/neat/tidy? Still need something else in the meantime.

Twenty questions!

It's been about two weeks since I placed the sweet potato in the water jar. It now has roots up to three inches long. No sprout yet, but I'm happy to see some action.

I get way too excited about checking on these things every morning.
