A new hobby for spring? Could it be I am finally growing a green thumb??


I have taken the leap.  I have been jump started, by the fabulous giving away of trees by my employer, into undertaking a new thing.  I, your favorite (maybe!) opinionated activisty midwestern girl, am FINALLY learning how to grow things.  I have purchased one of those seed starter sets that is like a little greenhouse, some seed starting soil (organic even!) and multiple packs of various types of seeds.  I have flowers and herbs and a few fruits and vegetables.  Here is hoping….right?

I also have several tree starts that I am hopeful will last until I can get them planted.  I currently have them in some clay pots with potting soil surrounding them and plenty of water (but not too much) so that they will be good until I can get them into the earth or a big pot.  I don’t know yet.  Maybe we will just pot them in large plant pots and do that til they are big enough to really thrive in the ground.  I don’t know yet.

I have grand thoughts.  I have a grand design for the ultimate garden…I hope that it works out the way I want.

Here is hoping my dogwoods, flowering plums and pines don’t die.  Here is hoping that my moonflowers, forget me nots, alyssums, morning glories, cosmos and whatever that other flower is along with my herbs (lots of them) germinate and sprout up and develop into beautiful functional and flowering plants.

I hope that it works.  I REALLY REALLY REALLY hope it works.  Wish me luck!

    Good luck! I remember one year I planted bulbs and a bunch of annuals; they all actually came up and they were truly beautiful. Only the daffodils and the morning glories returned the following year, but at least it was great once!

      I just checked yesterday. All of the seeds said 8-10 days but I already had sprouts on my cosmos and my morning glories 🙂 I am so excited to go home and check on them again tonight! I hope my lavender takes off soon! I really can’t wait to be able to gather my very own home grown fresh lavender!
