We're halfway through March and the first 70 degree day is upon us! We're anxious to get our little plants, which are nearly teeming over their trays, into our vertical garden so their roots can spread out a little. But something tells me (history, perhaps?) that we're not quite done with snow yet, and will most certainly see another freeze yet.
That chard! I love how purple it is, and how it curls over the edges of the tray. Also, it's ironic that we have a camera on display in this picture, as I am maybe the world's worst photographer. I can't seem to take a picture without it coming out blurry.
Anyway, I also planted some lavender last week, and am excited to report that the tiniest little buds have broken through the soil. I'm just experimenting, having never grown lavender before, but am so looking forward to the possibility of fragrant blooms soon. I bought French Lavender, as I've read it does the best indoors, but also "True Lavender" (this one is yet to grow at all. Everything I read also told me to use a sandy soil so I used cactus soil and keep it really well drained. Anyone have any other pointers for growing lavender indoors? I want it to work so badly! Here are my first tiny sprouts (you may have to squint! Hint: bottom and top left. I think it may be only visible to me in this photo though because I know where they are in real life).
Also, beautiful cilantro that I can't wait to put in guacamole.
