I started enough seeds a couple of weeks ago for me and Jessica and whom ever else needs or wants some. Most all of them sprouted.


So yesterday I decided it was time to put them in little pots to begin their journey towards my new herb bed or one of their other new homes.


I cut newspaper circles with my handy dandy Fiskers circle cutter to put in the bottom of the pots (keeps the soil from falling through the little hole in the bottom).



See how nicely they fit!



Then I labeled the pots. I had numbered my trays and then kept a little notebook with the names/numbers of what I planted.


Adding a little potting soil.


A little water.


Seedlings and then a little more water…


Awww…aren’t they adorable!? I will begin hardening them over the next couple of weeks in preparation for their new bed. These are all culinary herbs ~ 3 kinds of basil, chives, thyme, 3 kinds of parsley plus cilantro, oregano, spearmint, sage – no rosemary as I have a HUGE rosemary plant I hope to transplant as well. I think I will make a trip to the nursery when the bed is ready and put in a little medicinal section as well. Borage, St. Johns, Lambs Ears, Chamomile, Comfrey (if I can find some).

This warm weather lately has inspired me!

Poor, poor pumpkins

I have no excuse for letting my pumpkin patch get so out of control.  None what so ever.  Now it is a massive undertaking.

I really cant believe I am sharing this picture.  Makes me ashamed of my lazy self.  I LOVE my pumpkins every Autumn.  Others love my pumpkins as well.  I am about half finished weeding as you can see.  And I watered the heck out of them.  A couple of plants have blooms so that is promising.  We never plant your ordinary orange Halloween pumpkins.  Here are a picture of another year’s harvest.


And a little better one…

I have quite a job ahead of me – finishing this today is my goal.

BTW: It is very hard to type with a kitten helping!
