While the weather outside is nasty the plants inside are taking root and getting big. My little Coriander seedling warranted his own pot and is now being fed a mix of nutrient and coffee. The Belladonna and Mandrake seeds are in their little pots being fed the same nutrients and the Basil is getting big. I think I’ll find a good spot out of the way (in April or May) and sow some chives directly into the soil and just see what happens. I’ve had great luck with chives in my garden and a random patch would be lovely. It comes back every year, too, if you do it right. I always let a few bunches go to seed and it will re-propagate itself. Kind of like mint. I have so much mint in my back garden that its minty goodness will always be there and I have no desire to get rid of it. I bought enough pots and seeding soil to make sure the calamus can be planted next week and the the Nightshade can be planted the 19th and all the basil plants can be re-potted in pots. I’ll start the lemon balm and cypress in April when I start the veggies. I need more room. ::laughs:: Greenhouse! I need to talk to DH about this.
So much garden dreaming, such little time. Still reading the greenhouse growing book and learning a lot. I’ll post a complete review of the book when I’m done. I’m already pretty sure it’s getting a 5-star recommendation from me. Just what I’ve learned in the first few chapters was worth the price of the book.
