Update: My Miracle-Gro Gro-ables

Miracle Gro Groables | girl about columbus Today is the day for Grow Columbus, the event in which Sprout it has partnered with Miracle-Gro and the Mid-Ohio Foodbank to provide you all with 40,000 FREE Gro-ables Seed Pods at various Columbus locations! You can read more about that HERE. Miracle Gro Groables | girl about columbusI really do think this is such a fun event and so I decided to give you all an update on how my Gro-ables Seed Pods are doing today. I planted my pods in early April, as you can see HERE, and all nine of them sprouted within the first two weeks of planting them! Miracle Gro Groables | girl about columbus I knew that the veggies + herbs were guaranteed (how great is that!?) to grow, but I still was amazed at how easy it was: I just gave them as much sunlight + warmth as I could, with just enough water to keep them moist. I planted the basil, dill seed, zucchini, cilantro, romaine lettuce, spinach, globe tomato, cherry tomato, and cucumber seed pods. Miracle Gro Groables | girl about columbus Now, I’m very pleased with how my tomato plants, romaine, dill seed, cilantro, basil, and zucchini are growing but my spinach and cucumber could use a lil’ extra TLC. If any of you have any advice for these, please send them my way – especially the spinach because I plan on eating this every day! girl_about_columbus_blog
