I'll admit - I don't have a clue about what I'm doing.
Okay - maybe a small one. I have grown flowers from seeds a time or two (and succeeded, to my own pleasant surprise).
I am definitely...ummm...green (sorry for the pun).
So - here is a small glimpse at our first baby steps toward our organic kitchen.
First of all - here is what's currently growing.
Stop! Do not congratulate me yet! My mother-in-law planted these shoots back in mid-October. You are looking at 3 kinds of lettuce: butter, chrystal, and rucola, swiss chard and onions.
Here is what I've started.
This is what can be planted right away.
The seeds in the middle - in the plastic bag - are rhubarb seeds that actually came from from shoots from my grandma's rhubarb plant! Makes it sort of special!
This is what has to wait for warmer days
I was sort of excited about finding these biodegradable pots. No transplanting. Just plop them in the ground!
Grow, grow, grow little seeds.
I do have comfort knowing that if I do not succeed with the seeds, that I will be getting more shoots from my mother-in-law. My fallback plan!
Oh - and let me introduce you to Tiggar.
He is a wild cat that adopted us as his new family - and has quickly proven that he is in fact easy to spoil. *grin* Just so long as he keeps the mice population down. So far he's doing an excellent job.
