Some pics of my efforts from seedlings....

Just figured out how to post pictures :D so I'm practising! Here are some pics of my seedlings, some still ready for final transplant - others now transplanting into their final home for the summer on my balcony.

Snow peas, transplanted into a 10" container. I'll put a trellis in there as soon as I'm leaving them outside 24/7.

Some peppers waiting on final transplant.

Here are my sweet peas which I need to get transplanted into their final home asap. They are getting leggy. The wind is hard on them.

Some cukes, transplanted into a 10" container. I'm going to train them up a trellis.

Bush beans (which I bought by accident... not being careful enough to realize that I needed pole beans). But here they are healthy, etc., and transplanted into their final home for the summer in a 10" container.

These were also from the gift basket arrangement... someone told me they are known as 'Aluminum Plant'??

This is a peace lily which was recently given to me, along with a few other plants in a 'gift arrangement'. They were overcrowded, so I've transplanted them all into separate containers. They all look much healthier now, after only a week.

This is the size of the sweet potatoe vine which started sprouting a couple of weeks ago. I have two more spuds which are sprouting well right now. too. I'm hoping that they'll be ok in my 'over the balcony rail' containers, with some colourful flowers.

Thanks Venice & BBQ. I think keeping them in the little 'mini-greenhouse' overnight really helps them. They always look really happy in the am when I first open it up. :) I'm still using the little greenhouse ...I put all the plants outside when I get up, and bring them inside at about 8pm or so and put them back in it. I know the peace lily perked up a lot after I left it in there overnight. It looked like a totally different plant!
