Initial counts: beans, peas, lettuce, bok choi

peas.jpgI went through and did some initial counts on what is growing and has been separated out into individual pots. Since the seeds for things like lettuce are so tiny, I always end up with multiple plants in each pot. I've been going through and transplanting them to bigger pots, one plant per spot, so that they have more room to grow. However, I'm only about a third of the way through that process, so these numbers for greens will increase once I finish that work. Beans and peas are already one to a spot since their seeds are significantly larger and easy to separate.

I'll work on getting better numbers over the next few days, as we'll be setting up my shelves and I'll have more room to put all the transplanted seedlings.

I will also likely end up doing a third round of these. I had to stop previously because I ran out of seeds, hence some of the odd numbers you'll see listed. Plus I have the scarlet runner beans that are supposed to be here later this week and some Italian beans.

When it comes to peas and beans, I usually plant at least a dozen, if not more, in my garden as most don't take up a lot of space. I think last year I ended up with something like 25 pea plants in my garden, which produced peas for months, not to mention the beautiful flowers.
