…it stopped raining long enough for me to do something in my garden. And the soil was still quite wet. I raked it a bit to break up some lumps, and got lettuce, carrots and onions planted. I’m rather frustrated, because even with all that I added to the soil, its still very clumpy and heavy with clay. Perhaps my expectations are wrong. Hopefully, as I plant stuff and it grows, the soil consistency will improve.
My grow light is doing wonders and I’ve got lots of little seedlings. I finally got a timer for the light, so its not up to me to remember to plug the light in or unplug it at night. More than once, we’ve been in bed, I say “what’s that light? Oh, its the grow light. I’ll be right back.” That’s a tad miserable, after you are all snug and warm in bed to get up into the cold. Here’s some of what I’ve got:
Uncle Chuck’s Beans – doing very well!
Marjoram, oregano, chives and thyme — though all the seedlings look alike, so I’m wondering if one set of seeds got washed into surrounding areas.
Can’t hardly see them, but Cherry Roma Tomatoes
Bell Peppers — wow are they doing well, and I got these seeds from all the bell pepper I purchased at the store to eat!
Garden Huckleberry – I’m excited about these berries. I hope for berry bushes some day, but these will do until then.
