SPRING IS COMING!   Leave a comment

In January I was reading about the snow falling on the northeast (and it still is!) but when I went to the Dollar Tree store they already had the shelves filled with planters, soil, garden gloves, packages of seeds 4 for a dollar from flowers, to herbs to veggies and fruits! Yep I started buying.

For those of you who were here last year you might remember the disaster I had trying to grow veggies, like beets, so this time I decided to go for the packages that were specifically marked ‘for containers’ and I just stuck to radishes to experiment with. Along the way I picked up a herb garden starter kit of basil, chives, dill and parsley and since I don’t know the meaning of moderation I also got packs of  lavender, cilantro, sage, oregano and thyme.

I goofed, already, with the starter kit by putting in too much water one day but a few greens are coming up. I will have to thin out the radishes which was something I didn’t do with the beets last year. I am open to any and all suggestions from those of you who know what to do! :O)

I also threw in the latest picture of the sweet potato vine that is doing great!
