Despite my sense of impending doom, we are trying gardening again this Spring. After our results of last Spring/Summer being well disappointing (five cherry tomatoes. One rotten pepper. An ambush of mint.) we are going to clean out and try again this year. Right now our vegetable bed is a series of sticks and rotten vegetables. I suggested a compost pile, but my husband feels confident we can fix the issues and start anew. So now I am attempting to grow some seedlings a series of little pots and cups, hoping that they will grow and then be transferable to the garden. Unfortunately it seems as though we are living in Seattle these days…constant drizzle, cold weather, and gray skies abound. My plants are not doing so well. I have moved them from the window to under the fluorescent lights in our kitchen to try to get them some artificial sunlight, since there is no actual sunlight.
I have started with rosemary, basil, tarragon, parsley, and cabbage (donated by my Mom). I am going to attempt to post once a week showing the growth of the plants (if there is any!) and hopefully (fingers crossed) we will have better success this time around.
