First a peek at our established seedlings:
I thinned the leeks, but I think I'm going to have to thin them more. They seem happy, though.
And the thyme is coming along nicely, although very sensitive to sun placement -- I have to remember to keep turning them so they don't grow sideways.
Last week, we planted eggplant and parsley -- and thank goodness I gave them an extra day, or I would have had to report that there was no action from either one. But today, the first little parsley sprouts came poking through.
Eggplant is still a mystery, though. Hoping for the best.
This week, we planted broccoli and sage. Here's what the seeds look like, in case you were curious...
They were planted in another motley crew of containers. Hooray for the recycling bin!
In other gardening news, the snow finally melted and I was getting geared up for building my raised beds... until it decided to rain for days on end and turn my yard into Mudville. If I can wade out there, I may try to get them built next weekend, so I can fill them with soil and compost and get my super-early seeds in the ground already! Times a-wastin', by gum.
Our weekly wrap-up:
Leeks: Planted 3 weeks ago, thinned once, need more thinning. Doing great!
Thyme: Planted 2 weeks ago, about one inch tall.
Parsley: Finally beginning to sprout.
Eggplant: Whole lotta nothin'...
Sage: Planted today, 7-21 days to germination.
Broccoli: Planted today, 5-14 days to germination.
Check back every week as we follow our kitchen garden from seed to table!
