Well, it's been a month since our 2013 edible gardening plans were tossed up in the air and the roughest part is that we still don't have any kind of closure or sense of exactly how and when our living situation might change. So we soldier on with a mobile version of our original plans.
It's been a chilly month in Seattle and our sprouts have been appearing rather sporadically. Although the addition of our Windowfarm (read more about that here) means that not all of our edibles growing quite so slowly. As I mentioned last month we started with the full grown plants but also began the process to start a few other plants from seed.
All of our efforts were successful and the new plants are now happily growing along their tower. From the habanero pepper to the beautiful basil you see above, all the Windowfarm plants seem to be happy and continue to grow quite rapidly.
Outside things are much smaller and moving much slower which I'm pretty sure is due to the chilly weather we've been having. Hopefully things will warm up soon and the rest of the seeds will take off. At this point, I've seen tiny sprouts of the chamomile, collards, kale, and lettuce plants.
The strongest of the sprouts has to be the Arugula - it was the first to make an appearance and it's going strong. Can't wait to start topping our pizza with it.
So, that's where we are now - mostly hoping the weather will change and that we'll eventually get some clarity on our living situation. It's all about patience right now. At least we have the Seattle Tilth May Edible Plant Sale to look forward to!
