Got out in the garden today

Planted fingerling potatoes in container -seems crowded I may have to move some.

Planted onion sets, moved broccoli outside and spinach plant.

Sunday, January 30, 2011 start

Only the one Thyme seed germinated in the Thyme pod and it shriveled up after a couple of days.

A few basil sprouted but they too perished.

Yesterday I plucked everything out and restarted with park peat plugs. Planed the same varieties...

I also started Broccoli on the windowsill this week.

Signs of Life!

I'm thinking I probably shouldn't have planted seeds that are tough to start for my first venture into Aerogardening...I'm so anxious for them to grow. Of the six varieties I've planted, I know that lavender, pomegranate and the passiflora aren't ever in a rush to get going..that just leaves three pods to watch I was rewarded...the creeping thyme has germinated!

So at 5 days we have one pod with life...creeping thyme...picture follows:

I think I can see some basil coming up too!
