My little seedlings (and whatnot)

On the last full moon I started two flats of seedlings for this year's container garden. I might have gotten a little carried away, so chances are if you read this and ask nicely I'll send a few of them your way when they're ready!

This is how much they'd grown as of March 26th....still just wee little babies!

I've got several different things growing...5 each of Lavender, Fennel, Cilantro, Tarragon and Tomatoes in one flat, and Thai Basil, Basil, Thyme, Marjoram, and Forget-Me-Nots in the other.

This is them today. Most of them are getting pretty big already, but the Tarragon & Lavender (top left) have some catching up to do!

The tomatoes, fennel and cilantro are growing the fastest ~ I may have to move them into bigger pots sooner than I expected...

On another gardening note, I have a fig tree I grew from a cutting that is now in its third year in a very large pot, but I want to plant it in its permanent spot this year if we can agree where to put it.

You can't tell by this pic, but it's about 5' tall now.

I know it needs plenty of sun and a nice sized area for it to grow in, but we have a small yard so space is an issue....what to do???

My Rosemary is back again this year

so is my yummy Greek Oregano

and my trusty Lemon Balm

I bought a nice English Lavendar plant for the front entrance...I just couldn't wait for my little sproutlets to grow!

All & all, I'd say the yard is looking pretty good so far!

Although it could use some new mulch and a good weeding!


  1. It is looking wonderful!

    And, um, pretty please with sugar lemon cookies on top, can I have some of your 'leftovers'? I'm not picky on which ones :)

  2. You got it, chica! You can take some home with you when you finally come get the ab lounger!
