More buds and a new garden
Wednesday, 18 May 11 Cloudy 21°C / 69°F
I’ve split off my back porch into a “Nursery” garden since right now I have various things back there at different stages that just aren’t ready to go out yet. I’ve got seedlings, cuttings, recently repotted, recently divided and recovering from damage. So far so good. I should probably inspect everything carefully since I am having to fight aphids out front right now. At least the ivy on the fence seems to be a lady beetle sanctuary and maybe they can come help with the aphid issue.
My rosemary seems to have developed a good strong root system now but I can’t decide if it’s time to transplant yet. I always seem to err on the side of transplanting a little later than I should.
And the edible flowers are starting to bud. That means chamomile tea for me soon. And since I started 4 more plugs of Chamomile a couple days ago that have already sprouted I hope to be harvesting chamomile for months to come.
I’ve really got to decide what else I want to start up for fill ins as the season goes on.
