Seedling Progress

Sorry I haven't been around much (if anyone actually reads this)! I've been having some personal stuff going on, but I'm hoping to get a lot done this weekend, so expect some posts next week! I've got an out of state wedding coming up at the end of the month, so I wont be around then, either.

Anyways! I wanted to share how well my little seedlings are doing! It's been about 3 1/2 weeks since I've planted the little buggers, and I still haven't done any research on them, and they doing super. It's so exciting to wake up every day, run downstairs and see how big they've grown. My sugar snap peas are literally growing an inch a day. It's insane.

Here you can see the sugar snap peas and the broccoli. They are doing the best. Ignore the hair dryer, I'm sure everyone has a hair dryer in their kitchen. See how they are bending to the right? That's where our screen door is.

The basil has just started coming up (far left). The cilantro (left) is doing great! I'm happy with this, since cilantro is the herb that I use the most. The oregano (right) has just barely started sprouting. Its very small and thing in comparison to the basil and cilantro. And finally we have the catnip (far left) which is coming up slowly but surely. Also, please ignore the mess. We just had breakfast, and my boyfriend has been home from work all week, so there is stuff everywhere...

I'm pretty happy with this lot. They just started coming up and then they started going crazy. To the left you can see the chives, the parsley in the center, and the green onions on the right. I have some green onions in the fridge from the grocery store I will be planting this weekend. Can never have too many green onions.

And these are my slow growers. I have them directly in front of my back door. The roma tomatoes just started coming up on the left there. Nothing with the sweet peppers in the center, and a single sprout for the big boy tomatoes on the right. I plan on making a calender today on when they should be planted outside, and all that good jazz.

For a little over three weeks, its not bad progress! I can't wait for the day when I can actually pick something edible off them!
