2013 Spring Garden: Week 2

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…

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. 🙂

In other news, the final size of the garden will be 8 x 16 feet. I can’t wait to start building!! And by building I mean watchigh my fiance build everything from the kitchen with Pepper.

Oh and…Pepper got a new dog bed. She’s pretty happy with it:
