Not a whole lot has happened garden-wise in the past week. It has been snowing most of the time since Monday, but today the sun is finally trying to break out from the clouds and my plants are glad to be back in the greenhouse after 3 days in the house. There isn't enough room for all of them near the windows, so they don't get enough light.
All the seedlings are growing fast. I am anxiously waiting for the Rose Campion I planted on the 22nd to come up. It is one of my favorite flowers, although I've never grown it before.
I spent a very pleasant morning yesterday planting Old-fashioned Vining petunias, White horehound, lemon balm, red cabbage and broccoli. Today I will be planting Glaskin's Perpetual rhubarb, and Corsican basil.
With the weather being rather depressing for a gardener lately, I've been spending every spare moment staring at pictures of my favorite gardens and planning yet another flower garden of my own. Maybe one of these days I'll do a blog post on the gardens that inspire me!
I guess that's all for this update...I did add a Gallery page to this site with pictures of my gardens over the last 2 years. The pictures are out of order and I haven't figured out how to organize them yet, but I hope you enjoy them anyway! :)
I am a passionate gardener and seed-saver, who also enjoys playing the violin and accordion, running, spending time with my 4 golden retrievers, keeping chickens, photography, and reading. I also blog for Heirloom Gardener.
