Lily and I planted seeds a few weeks ago and more than half of them are sprouting already. And some of them are really sprouting. The beans and pumpkins are definitely the stars so far. Ya, I know, pumpkins.. I have no idea what I'm going to do with those, because as you can see..
..they are already getting pretty big. And obviously a pumpkin plant has no place (room) in a window garden.. never mind 3 pumpkin plants.
Even though it's still not warm enough for anything else, especially at night, these guys are out already. Onions. Not grown from seeds, but I didn't eat them fast enough and they started sprouting roots and tops. They almost went in the garbage, but after researching online.. I planted them instead. Apparently, they can have flowers as well, which would be interesting.
The onion seeds I had from last year are doing okay though..
As are the poppies, which went almost nowhere last year. Then there are tomato plants (which took forever to have tomatoes last year) grown from tomatoes that I grew. That is the best.
As soon as the weather gets a little warmer at night.. those bean plants will go out into their larger boxes. Hopefully it won't be more than a week or two, as I'm starting to run out of window sills.
Only one pot of sunflowers. And just like the last two tries, they refuse to grow straight. I am still hopeful that with a little encouragement I can correct it. But I also hoped that before and they all ended up broken.
I kept everything inside longer than I probably should have last year. And I didn't get things into bigger pots as fast as I should have. This year I'm working harder to not make either of those mistakes.
And lots of tomatoes. Which is good because, so far, the lettuce and cucumber seeds from last year have not sprouted at all. And I am starting to think that they won't. Which would be sad because they were my favorite things last year.
