Transplanting and seeding & first harvest!

It's hard to believe that we have only been in the greenhouse for five days. It is filling up so fast! I sepnt Monday and Tuesday making up hanging baskets. That is always so fun. They don't look like much right now, but in six weeks majic happens and they become fairy-tale lovely! We have grown some beautiful wave petunias and bacopa this year, with some new varieties that I am dying to see in the flesh (not sure 'flesh' is the right word, but I mean in reality and not just the picture in the seed catalog.) We're also busy transplanting seedlings into six pack flats and tomatoes and peppers into 6-inch pots and onions into trays. There is so much to do and it is all so fun! Last night I planted alyssum seeds and calendula, malva and lavatera. It is also time to plant some veggie seeds. Oh yes, last night I also made my first harvest. I noticed that the basil was ready to pick and hooray I cut a good bit and put in the fridge. Tonight I think I will make some pasta to use it on--yum!

  1. Just found your blog. Sounds like you have been really busy if the greenhouse is already full. I have no greenhouse, so I guess I'll just have to check out your selection at the farmer's market this summer.
