The only thing to keep me going are my little seedlings. Along with being the time of year for depressing and unpredictable weather, it is also seed-starting season! That means I have gone mental buying seeds, seed starting soil mix, seed starting kits and I have begun to hoard all yogurt containers, milk cartons and basically anything else that can be used to house a seedling. The husband must think I am nuts, with me inspecting every container for grow-ability before it goes to the recycle bin and the cat hates me because I have hijacked every window ledge in the house.
So far I have a few zucchini plants that are growing like mad (seriously, if the weather doesn't hurry up and change I don't know what I will do with them), some mystery tomatoes...mystery because I got so over excited with my planting that I forgot to label the pots and now have no clue what is what! I also have some marigolds that are really coming to life. In total (thus far) I have planted five different varieties of tomatoes, chard, leeks, two types of peppers, spring onions, cucumbers, eggplant, parsnips (for the hell of it) and turnips. I have even more that I intend on direct sowing IF the garden ever comes to life. Ambitious? You bet!
