Garden Update 27 Apr 08
My broccoli slowly gaining height and leaves. Only two survived my first attempt but I just planted some more seeds so hopefully they do better. In the meantime these guys have a nice large container all to themselves.
Some of the carrots have started to get their feathery leaves which is exciting since that is the first visible change in the past couple weeks. It’s slight frustrating watering them though since the water even when you pour it veeeeeerrrrrrrrry slooooooooowly and lightly they all fall over and then I have to pick them all up again or they will start to die (by drowning probably).
Ever the superstar my cherokee trail of tears beans continue to creep higher and have more leaves unfurl. I particularly love the vibrant green color.
Our sweet basil seems to have risen from the dead. I think it was to cold at home (because we never turn the heat on) or perhaps he wasn’t getting enough direct sunlight. Now he sits on my office window and can soak up heat and sun all day long.
Even our spinach has decided show us a new trick. They are sprouting their second set of leaves that actually look like really miniature spinach. Once theses guys are full grown I already have a greek recipe I want to try with phylo dough, feta, and spinach.
We also added a full on window box herb garden courtesy of our friend Bob as a birthday present for J. He has eight different ones in addition to the basil and parsley we were already growing.
And on top of all that we decided to sow another round of seeds (we have yet to taste success with tomatoes or peppers) today. We planted two types of tomatoes, one type of pepper, golden zucchini, more bee balm (something else I haven’t been able to grow from seed), some random flower I got for free with my seed order.
