I created a Grow Log to document my little fruit, herb and vegetable garden I am growing in my
New York City apartment.

When I'm not gardening I am a singer, songwriter and music producer and make the best coffee toffee on the planet. So good it was featured in
The New York Times

Over the weekend I saw an inspiring filmed called Food Fight & it reminded me how important it is to eat organicly grown food. The truth is you cant get more organic than growing it yourself so I have returned. My garden of 2010 has been planted and today we have sprouts!

My garden is doing very well now! I have been enjoying my lettuces & micro greens. I have even planted a cucumber & a couple of tomto plants in AG3s.
The plants I gave my mom have done well. She has tomatoes & peppers that taste amazing!
Sadly yesterday she discovered that she now has spider mites! How do these things find us?! At least, she has the spray formula I made to beat them. I am looking forward to having alot pf pennyroyal to keep the bugs away. It has just sprout a day or so ago.

My infestation is completely gone! Yay! I have already begun a new crop of romaine, lettuce vivian, bibb lettuce, arugula, thyme, chives, tiny tim tomatoes, broccoli microgreens, basil, oregano and am waiting for my cilantro & dill to sprout. Its been a few weeks now & I have had no sign of mites and my gnat population is almost none gone! I used a homemade insectide recipe I found online & it works like a charm. It kills the buggers on contact. I used the recipe I found here but I only used 1 tbsp of oil instead of a full cup.

I discovered today that I have a trouble infestation of spider mites which has infested almost all of my plants . I also broke one of my AG3 bulb when trying to clean the webs on top of it.
