See how my garden grows
Tuesday, 13 Mar 12 Cloudy 10°C / 50°F
Well, I put my greenhouse back up for the fourth time on Sunday evening. My girlfriend moved in that day so I’d been at her place since Friday night. We got all her gear into the house. I pulled open the curtain to pop a couple of things out on the balcony and was greeted by ‘that’ sight again. sigh The reason it fell again is one of the strings I had attaching it to the big tubs of soil in the bottom snapped with the wind so I have now retied and added extra lines made of hemp twine that are much stronger.
The mint and rosemary that I purchased a week or so ago have now both been transplanted into larger pots. The mint went outside into the greenhouse after the transplant and was looking a little worse for wear the next morning. It is still very cold here and the water near my house was semi-frozen the next morning – I’m guessing this and the transplanting are why it didn’t look so good. I kept the rosemary inside the night I transplanted it but will probably pop it alongside the mint tonight.
The weather is slowly warming up though with the middle of the day particularly being a bit warmer than a couple of weeks ago. With that warmth my peas are starting to really kick off. I think they are going to really fly as we get even further away from winter! I tied them onto the trellis last night to give them a helping hand in getting up.
Finally, none of my little capsicum seeds have sprouted yet. The soil has been kept moist so I’m not sure what is happening… Maybe it’s just going to take a few more days…? If they fail, I’ll look at trying again with the remaining seeds and failing that, I’ll purchase seedlings when they come available in April.
