Sunny Sunday

Is is me or does that little cloud look like a jellyfish?

Nice bright sunny day, still chilly but more springlike. At least it isn't snowing. So I decided to do this...
The individual planters have herb seeds (basil, oregano, parsley, cilantro & rosemary) and the large starter tray has veggies (carrots, cucumbers, peppers, beans & beets). This is the most veggies I've ever attempted to grow. I'm really hoping the carrots & beets turn out because I would love to make the Russian Beet & Carrot salad using home-grown ingredients! :) I also got the seeds going in the little kitty planter we got for x-mas.

There's no catnip, just wheat, rye, barley & oats. I don't know how the cat's will take to it, but there's no harm in giving it a go.

The cats should love it. Our poor house plants are constantly being chewed by our kitties and they aren't catnip, either. Kitties just seem to need something green once in a while.

Hey there Kim,
My advice on the carrots and beets is to try planting some by direct seed, meaning straight into your carden plot sometime in mid-May. I've had great success with them this way, and I've heard that they don't like to have their roots touched after sprouting, so it'll be a good experiment to try growing them both ways. See you tomorrow I hope.
Love, Elisha

I have started flower seed already in my ahem e season porch. I need my dad to build me some raised beds for a vege garden (icky clay soil and flooding issues)
