As promise from the previous post, I’m posting pictures of my herbs. They’ve grown so well!
Today, I spent a long day in the garden. It was extremely windy today and I got a lot of dust and dirt in my eyes but I continued on.

I planted more swiss chard seedlings, morning glory, hollyhocks, and some butterfly orchid seedlings into the ground today. I also set up a string trellis and oh boy was this a bad idea in a wind storm. I spent a good ten minutes untangling the mess.

Garden Update 02-19-08 (Herb Seeds)

I know I haven’t posted in awhile but we’ve been away house sitting, dog sitting, and teenager sitting at my new aunt’s (aunt by marriage) house. I apologize for my absence. I have dropped into my apartment to check on my garden periodically this past week and I just wanted to say that my herb seeds are doing well. I have germination on most of my herb seeds. Here’s a few to show: We have thyme, oregano, and catmint seedlings.

I started some impatien seeds this winter for houseplants and they’ve started to bloom. Amazingly, they’re three different colors: pink, red, and white. I just wanted to show everyone my first bloom of my impatiens. They’re gorgeous. I’ll eventually repot them into larger pots to allow them to grow a little bigger. I’ll probably use terra cotta pots since I like the look of terra cotta.

Yesterday, I started some more seeds. I started some herb seeds (thyme broadleaf, rosemary, catnip, chives, oregano, and lemon balm) in these small ice cream pots you get at the grocery store. I also started some more swiss chard-bright lights in peat pellets. I was so excited when I got these as an exchange from my garden buddy, Mary Ellen. I’ve always wanted to try these and was going to get some at the store next time I was out. Luckily, I got my seed package in the mail before that! I also started my first flower seeds as well. I started some stocks 10 weeks, wonder eggs, hosta, and snapdragon (first ladies mix). I’m excited to see how the wonder eggs and hosta will do. I have a bit of shade in my garden and am hoping the hosta will do well there. Here’s hoping…
