More growth!

Interestingly, these growths align with day 10.

In May (or maybe April…) Witchlette and I planted a number of bulbs. The flowers from one type of bulb have already bloomed and gone. 

The second type of bulb burst open this morning!

Don’t mind the weeds, I’m an expert at growing those!

In the back, our sunflowers are winding down and our watermelon has a baby fruit on the vine.

The fruit is all gbe way down there!

The baby carrots have all been picked, though they were all too bitter. We’ll try again next year!


Continued growth

This Yule, Witchlette and I dedicated ourselves to improving our green thumbs. 

We planted basil and lavender during the winter holiday. 

Our six small pots of basil are doing quite well.

We’re still waiting for the lavender…

In February, we planted five bulbs. All of them were in pots and they all sprouted. We transplanted them to the front garden as we cleaned it up and gave it fresh mulch. Three of them have been thriving since transplanting. Two have yet to peak through. 

Two weeks ago, while making dinner, I found a potato that had more growth than not, so we planted it! 

Witchlette found watermelon and sunflower grow kits in her Easter basket which we will begin this weekend. 

Here’s hoping the green on our thumbs sticks…It’s been great bonding working in the dirt with her! And Witchling is excited to join us!

On the 9th day of Yule

We explored how the days are getting longer and the nights are getting shorter as, while it will [theoretically] get colder in the next few weeks, the earth is actually preparing for spring. 

We are joining the earth in the preparation by planting and having a garden started to go right into the ground after the last frost has passed. 

We should start to see some seedlings in the next 2 weeks!

I have not been shy about my black thumb. My hope is to get some basil to be potted in the kitchen and some lavender in the front garden. If this goes well, well expand to another herb and maybe a veggie in the spring!
