The leeks were planted one week ago today. My, haven't they grown? Do you see how they come sprouting up as a long, folded stalk, and then gradually straighten up? Fascinating!
Today we planted thyme seeds -- German winter thyme, specifically. This is my first year growing it, but the bonus is, it's a perennial. So hopefully these plants will establish themselves and I can then ignore them. Which I am really, really good at doing.
So our seedling update:
Leeks: 1 week, doing fine
Thyme: planted today, 14-21 days to germination
And the remaining seeds that will be started indoors to get an early start: parsley, eggplant, broccoli, sage, tomato, basil, cucumber, pumpkin, zucchini. Oh, and daisies, because the five-year-old insisted.
Check back every Sunday for a kitchen garden update!
