I'm used to flower gardens - I've cultivated flowers for years - but never any vegetables, except the odd cherry tomato plant. Since there's not much sun here, I'm going to try vegetables in pots - hmmmm, we shall see.
I planted some tiny sage plants. I'm starting everything in the greenhouse for a week or so - except the potatoes - more about them later.
And the lettuce is starting to come up. I planted lettuce seeds.
Onion sets. I have no idea what kind they are or how close to plant them. Well, here goes!
Isn't this a great pot?? It came with the house.
Anybody know if they are too close together??
I took some more pictures of the sky and trees. Look, we are finally getting some baby leaves!
Oh, the potatoes. I read about this somewhere. Get a HUGE flowerpot or a half barrel, and fill it about one fourth with potting soil. Plant your seed potatoes and cover with about an inch of soil. When the plants start growing, cover the stems with soil until they gradually reach the top of the pot. More potatoes will form off the stems as they are covered. When you harvest, the whole pot will be full of potatoes! This sounded great so I tried it. No sprouts yet, but it seems a lot easier than planting them in the ground.
And, made a quick spring wreath for the door. Before . . .
