Oh I love marigolds! We used to grow them in elementary school in little pots on the classroom windowsill.
They're very nearly my favorite flower!! I've always thought the blooms were very cute. I only wish I could grow my actual faves in AG, but sunflowers are too big!! Especially the Maximilians, I love them dearly but they're big-time spreaders that I don't think would even do well in a pot, much less AG. Though I admittedly have never tested that theory!

The marigolds have gotten super thick and pretty!! Can't wait for them to start flowering!!
And the lettuce is coming along really nice too! Going to harvest these MUCH sooner than I did the ones in the other machine, to avoid the mold issue happening again. It had also started to bolt, so I clearly waited way to long to harvest the other batch - it hadn't flowered yet, so I thought it'd be fine if I just tossed out the stems that had started to grow up, but some of it was still quite bitter. So going to pay much closer attention to my lettuce for now on!
