Seedlings

I've started popped seeds into containers and pots again, it's that time of year.  I've got some Cayenne Pepper seedlings nicely growing and potted on into bigger pots, I have high hopes for them but I always do at this stage!



I love growing from seed, there is something so magical about watching a tiny seed burst out from it's shell and force its way up toward the light, new life.



In my recycled plastic egg boxes, I've put basil, oregano, thyme, carrots, sage, tomatoes and beetroot, just a few of each. The egg box acts as a makeshift greenhouse when left on a warm windowsill.  The basil is up and some beetroot and one solitary Sage seedling.  I've sown in stages to give me time to plant on.




Last year we got a lot of beetroot and a glut of tomatoes which is never a bad thing here, some found their way into my homemade tomato and chilli chutney so hoping for another glut this year!


And some tomato plants I made earlier, I'm going to try and measure the yield I get from 4 tomato seeds, these are cherry tomatoes. This was last week and now they are this high!  Time to pot on and give them a taste of the outdoors on our sunny front porch.



A couple of Sunflowers have shoved their way through, they are such strong seedlings compared to some. I'm really hankering after visiting the sunflower fields in France and photographing them but until then I'll grow my own with the little one who I know will love watching them grow as much as I do.



Linking up with Mammasaurus for How Does Your Garden Grow this week.

  5. Wow! I love seeing all these seedlings. You've made me realise that I really need to get started if I'm going to plant anything this year; our endless winter has thrown me rather :)

  9. I'm really impressed with your seed growing, which I always think requires a bit of organisation and a lot of patience.
