The good news is that I finally got some seeds started in one of the aerogardens, the bad news is that my planting diagram seems to be lost. I have a vague memory of grabbing a ‘scrap’ of paper and scribbling a quick drawing of the earth’s rotation around the sun as an explanation of the changing seasons for Tea, who is adamant that Wiarton Willie said it’s going to be SUMMER very soon … “no-no”, she says, “spring comes AFTER summer, momma!”
Anyway, the page is gone – perhaps tossed by my little one, as if to erase all proof and therefore all chance that summer’s swimming pool isn’t so close after all – so I suppose I will have to record the sprouting and such after-the-fact, once I can recognize the seedlings. But for now, I’ll at least note that we planted something, somewhere.
And naturally, I had more seeds than pods so I started a few different herbs in a small pot for the kitchen window ledge … not that there’s any room on the ledge, but we’ll worry about that once they’ve sprouted!
In fussing around with the kitchen window pots, I’ve just realized that I don’t seem to have plantings here on Folia for two of my favourite houseplants? How could that be?!? Rosemary & Bay, added as established.
1) Rosemary Standard, which I grew out from a small cutting and clipped and trimmed into standard form.
2) Bay Laurel – looking a little sparse these days from all those wintery stews and broths, but it’s already budding out getting ready for warmer days.
3) Another shot of the tea plant … just because.
4) Areogarden #1 planted with herbs
