Seedlings sprouting

Everything is coming up... thankfully!
The tomato seeds have sprouted, as well as the Green Globe artichokes, and the Cocozelle zucchini. Am planting Citron seeds now, as well as some more herbs.
Pennyroyal is coming up, and the radicchio.
Thinking I'll have a bumper crop of Thai basil this year, too. Not a bad thing, really!
What seeds are you starting? Would love to hear about it! : )

Dear Karen, Thank you so much for picking my latest posting through which I have found you.

You appear from the photograph to be very well organised with your seedlings. Now is such an exciting time as everything begins to germinate. I have promised myself to raise lettuce in pots this year, That, I am afraid, will be the extent of my vegetable gardening.

I am feeling so left out, no room in my very tiny condo in Toronto, and not in the country often enough to water them.

Hi Edith, it was my pleasure picking your post. Excellent! Happy you found me this way! You are so right. It's an exciting time, and honestly for anyone to say that I'm organized, well, let's just say that's the best of all compliments! Raising lettuce in pots is great. Container gardening is wonderful! Just a smaller raised bed, is all!

Deborah, I'm so sorry you feel left out! I thought you'd have some going at your country place. Perhaps just some herbs on your windowsill might be something you could do? Hoping all is well. You must be busy at work these days. : ) said...

Hi Karen - looks like you are well on your way to having a wonderful veggie plot. My seeds are not as mature as your's - I've planted some mesclum lettuce mix and two varieites of tomatoes - Balcony Beauty and Via Italia (a plum for "sundrying" and sauces).

Hi Heather, thanks very much! I'm giving it my all this year, and especially at the museum garden here, where we're trying to grow only heirloom veggies. As long as I can keep the critters away, I think it'll be great!
Am trying mesclun lettuce as well for the first time. Do you have much success with it? I'm wondering how many further plantings I should do. Your tomato varieties sound great! Is Balcony Beauty a cherry tomato? Mmmm! And I love the plum varieties. That'll be great for your sauces. Keep in touch! I'd love to hear how they're coming along!
