The Greenhouse Tenants

My main objective here is not to grow food. If food results that will be lovely but ultimately i want a room where i can be surrounded by healthy thriving greenery and after a hard day of peopling, i can go in there and just be with plants. So i have selected food plants and if they produce they produce and if they dont they dont. Its all a bit of an experiment when you are deviating from the norm. Who knows if there will be enough sun or if i will be a formidable enough substitute for the best pollinators, the bees. its all an experiment. The only way id consider it a failure would be if nothing at all grew, if all the plants withered and returned to the dirt.

Spaghetti Squash
Dill, garlic chives, onion chives, cinnamon basil, basil
Snap peas and butter lettuce
Cucumber and Cantaloupe
I like to separate the sprouts when they are tangled together so that each one may live rather than the strongest overpowering the others. This means detangling and sometimes breaking roots. I make sure each one has a large enough portion of the roots for survival. They wilt immediately but over time they stand back up. They are resilient and then i have 4 okra vs 1 from each container.
Squash and Zucchini
Butternut Squash and Lemon Cucumbers
Japanese Eggplant

I have since added some green beans, black beans, navy beans, and lima beans to the garden but they are so little at the moment there’s not much to photograph. I’ll have to add them in to this post later when they’ve grown a bit.
