Feels like Spring outside,

so garden daydreaming is at its' height! Just because I'm restricted to a plant tower inside doesn't mean that I can't sigh over various container gardens. For instance, a used wading/puppy pool & a few re-usable tote bags equals a neat little garden.  Bet I could manage a few radishes ...just because I'm not overly fond of them is no reason not to grow them ;) Probably won't try the carrots as they're not a big fan fave of the grandchildren.  For next season, I'll be stocking up on a few nice sized, tough bags.   Thinking about sprouts & sprouting , but not sure how well they will go over.  For lovely, lovely inspiration, 66 square feet is a wonderful place to start. 

For days when I need a bit more daydreaming time, I think how lovely it would be to grow my own cocktail ingredients, thanks to Amy Stewart & Territorial Seed .  And, if I had a bit more room in my city yard, little dinosaur fluffies would be skittering around :)

  2. Spring is here, indeed! And it's not being shy around my house. The other day, I found a oak growing in my pepper plant. Yes, you read correctly, an oak. And I stuck an old ginger root in a bit of soil (which I might have grabbed from a local park *cough, cough*) and that is sprouting, too. And the citronella cutting I transplanted didn't even blink, I'm not sure that it realized that it was just a cutting and was supposed to look limp for while--it's gorgeous already. Now, I'm waiting to get rid of some gnats that have taken over the terrace, and then I plan to go crazy there, too.

    Yay, spring!

  4. Great links! We were late planting again this year, since as long as there is now by our house I just hibernate. I have a lot of replanting to do this weekend.

    1. Since I'm doing my 'gardening' inside this year, I'm not so worried about getting seeds to ground this year.
