More May planting....
I just realized I have not purchased one seedling from the nursery this year! I have started all my plants from seed! This is a remarkable accomplishment for me. Thanks Uncle Tom......speaking of.......those Black Eye Susan seeds that came fom Uncle Toms Garden in Maine that I had started back in March are ready to transplant out to their permanent location. They really did great, what a relief....I'm really happy about that.
Basil ready to transplant out into its permanent location.
Valarian is ready to transplant out. These seeds were left in the refridgerator in a bag of soil over the winter. On 2/9 I noticed a few had sprouted, so I transplanted them into a pot, and this in the one survivor. Valarian is a medicinal herb, great for the relaxation border, can be used in a tea at bed time.
These are two Echinacia ready to be transplanted out, that began life just as the Valarian did, and only two survivors out of six.
More Calendula is ready to go out (so easy to start from seed, very reliable medicinal herb, great for the skin, and a great edible flower to add to your salad).
