see my seedlings !May 15, 2017 / byCozy Memories / Categories : Feeds
Except for the last years' little windowsill urban gardening (growing chives, basil etc), I never grew anything from seeds. Then this spring, I've started with radishes, and then cherry tomatoes, mild chilis, ipomoeas, and very lately, cosmos & perennial linen flowers.
Since the photos were tken, all of the (too many, rookie's mistake !) cherry tomatoes have been transplanted to larger places, some have such a strong & wide stem now, I still can't believe it !
Chilis, on the other side, have been taking their time. They are still in the green house, waiting to be stronger & larger before moving out ! But also since the photos were taken (on May 06th actually), they have grown extra leaves, and moved to slightly bigger pots. Harvest shall not be before August (though I expect earlier, given our kind of weather), so they clearly have some time ahead !!
I decided to sow cosmos & perennial linen flowers, in order to complete the flowerbed. They will try to fill the gaps before the other plants & flowers. Or so I hope them to ! And, as expected, they (well, more particularly the cosmos) have grown a bunch since the day I took all these photos.
Linen to the left, cosmos to the right. I shall get three shades of cosmos : white, light pink & darker pink. I love cosmos, I'm really looking forward to growing them all summer & autum long !
Well, I most obviously will keep you posted about their progress ! Until then, I'll thank you for taking time to stop by ! Hoping you are doing fine !
