I had a meeting after work today so I had a limited window of opportunity to get Things Done when I got home. I debated whether to get a little wicking bed put together or whether to plant some seeds. I decided to go with the seeds because they need the time to germinate. And Spring is galloping towards us!!!
Peppermint, marigold, nasturtium, basil, pumpkin and lots of different tomatoes whose seeds I saved earlier this year.
Remember how I was whingeing about how I’d dried and saved Tommy Toe seeds, only to have Gardening Australia tell me I had to ferment them so I was doing it all wrong? Here they are, planted side by side. The Gardening Australia seeds and the ordinary old “dry ’em then plant ’em” seeds. I’m interested to see if there’s any difference in the rate of germination. I’ve put 16 seeds in each punnet, so if they all grow I’ll have LOTS to tomato plants to give away!
The overwintered basil is still going strong.
Dinner was a little late last night, but at least my seeds are in! Priorities, people.
