I am very happy because this week I was able to move one with my project. First of all, I had to re-plant half of the pots I had planted weeks ago. The reason for this was that there was no plant growth. I think that the soil I used (obtained from my backyard) was contaminated with something that prevented seed germination. The new soil was obtained from Phoenix College!!
I hope that this time I will have plant growth.

                In addition, today I was able to do my four winogradsky columns, and I hope I never have to do them again!! The smell of the pond muck was horrible, and I still get chills just by remembering it.  However, I am very happy to move on to the next step of my project…….wait. I have to admit that this is not the most exciting part, but I will eventually harvest the fruit of my labor.

The four winogradsky columns

  1. The smell gets worse...just wait till you have to remove and weight your plastic bags samples. Be careful, I had a column explode on me once. The fallout from that explosion is still on the wall today.
