I thought I would share with you some new seedlings that are just pushing their way through the soil. Many new gardeners like to see what happens – I remember how I would (and still do) stare at photos of something I was planning on growing. It is amazing how a seed you bury in the soil will produce food you can eat in 60-80 days … a true wonder.
These are tomato seedlings which were planted March 9 … so this is their progress at just over a week. I have them under heat lamps about 12-14 hours a day. I did have them covered with Saran wrap to keep the moisture in, but have now removed it, since they are telling me it’s time by pushing it out of the way. They want to Grow!
Next … more Dill and Basil which were planted March 10th and March 11th, respectively.
And last but not least … Baby Lavender seedlings! I have many well established plants growing down south and these little lavenders were started from seed that I obtained from those mature plants. Lavender takes a good 2-3 years to produce flowers and will return year after year.
I hope this enticed you to start some seeds and grow a garden this year if you haven’t made that decision yet. It really is a continual learning experience and it doesn’t always work as I plan, but I keep right on trying. My new and different plant for this year is “Pumpkin on a Stick” … make sure to watch to see how that goes!
Thanks for stopping by!
