Just one week after planting my seeds and I’m already seeing sprouts!
It’s hard to believe these are coming up fast. The first were the broccoli….
then a cucumber plant popped up…
and now a cherry tomato is poking through:
Also this past week I rescued a Basil plant from certain death. *cue Sarah Mclachlan sappy song* I was at the PA Garden Expo and this basil baby was laying by the trash. The cold weather and over watering made the plant look a little worse for wear so it was undesirable to sell. Naturally, I couldn’t let this innocent plant be tossed! I asked if I could take it home, and did.
So at 5:21 p.m., when it was 45 degrees outside, my morning coffee and new Basil buddy hit the road with me! Next stop: My Kitchen.
I set him up in my kitchen window next to the Bonsai Tree. Lots of sun and I can monitor progress. He’s looking better already….perked up with some water. If you have an herb plant that needs rescuing, leave a comment. I’ll be happy to foster it. 🙂
Oh and…Pepper got a new dog bed. She’s pretty happy with it:
See you next week!!
