Garden On!

If you've been reading this little ol' blog for a few weeks now then you're pretty caught up on my love of gardening.  My husband built me this super cute raised garden bed that I'm still waiting to plant stuff in (just 3 more weeks, eek).  However, I've been growing a small garden in our basement! That's right as of right now I have strawberries, tomatoes, green onions, parsley, cilantro, oregano, basil, and chives just growing away in our rec room.  I'm waiting on my mint and jalapeno peppers to start sprouting too, any day now.

And because I didn't want to jinx myself I grabbed several seeds (in case some didn't take) and I also used different variations of containers.  So far so good!



My cilantro seedlings started growing like crazy.  I'm hoping once they are transplanted outside they keep growing like they are now, I had a hard time trying to get them to thrive outside 2 summers ago.





My parsley and basil.


I also couldn't pass up these mini green houses.  Like I mentioned earlier I'm still waiting on the mint and jalapeno seedlings to sprout. I'm hoping they will make their debut in the next few days.  If not I'll probably give in and buy a couple jalapeno pepper plants and transplant them in the raised garden bed.



So that's where my garden is standing as of right now.  Our weather is suppose to be gorgeous next week so I'm planning on hardening off some of my herbs during that time so they can finally meet their new home outside.
