The last photos of the lettuce seedlings were actually a few weeks old, they look like this now! Do you know I've never grown lettuce completely from scratch before? I've always bought little seedlings, which seems kind of crazy since it's practically time to harvest them as soon as you buy them, but I'm afraid of failure. I'm still afraid of failure with these. Are they thinned enough? I can't bare to thin them any more!
Some more little seedlings. I'm so surprised and pleased those chives are coming back! I didn't think they would survive the winter in that little pot.
I finally got a nice little table for outside. There is still a little chill in the air that makes it hard to sit out there but soon!
These are some of the seeds I planted a few weeks ago. Everything is coming up! I'm really interested to see how those little round carrots do in containers, and I can't wait for radishes! Is there anything more satisfying than pulling those colorful roots out of the soil?
I'm also especially excited about this speckled lettuce, it's so pretty.
See the little speckles?
A lovely, also plant crazy, friend gave me all these amazing succulents from her garden! It's so nice to have a little touch of the desert around, especially since it's been raining pretty much every single day for the last three weeks! Once summer gets here Portland actually can be very hot, sunny, and dry, so they should do just fine but until the I'm giving them extra love and support in the form of a little UV lamp.
What extra things do you do for your plants to get them though the colder, darker months?
