Like most people who aren’t vampires or allergic to the sun,
I am not a huge fan of cold rainy days.
So the past week has been rather annoying.
The few things I planted have actually begun to sprout!
I took pictures to prove it.
I am notorious for ruining the life of any plant that I so much as glance at,
So this is a big deal for me.
Here begins our tour.
This is swiss chard.
I’m not sure what I’ll do with it once it matures,
But we had seeds and I stuck them in the ground.
My mom juices it. I’ll give her some.
Next we have here cute little spinach.
I actually like spinach a lot and will eat it if it actually grows up.
And these are radish sproutlings.
They need to be thinned out
It looks like they will be easy to grow at this point
But who knows with me…
These are my big herbs that I bought that way.
They inspired me to build the herb garden
And plant some new vegetables this year just to see what happens.
They were like,
“HEY what have you got to lose?”
And I said “$5.oo”
And they looked at me and said nothing.
I hung my head in shame.
It’s almost $5 for a tiny package of basil leaves at the grocery store
And here I wasn’t even willing to shell out the same for an ENTIRE PLANT?
Parsley and basil.
Basil got munched on by some dumb bugs or something
But hopefully will recover.
Otherwise I’m going back to Lowe’s for a replacement.
Ahh last but not least.
Here is a picture of the pallet-herb-garden.
So far so good.
And that is that.
Now the sun can come out.
