Today was a good day
While at the supermarket with my mom today I picked up some seeds. (Unlikely place to buy seeds, I know). I picked up just a couple of varieties due to the small-ish nature of my garden.
- Plain old every-day Broccoli
- Long-Standing (whatever that means…) Spinach
- Iceberg Lettuce
I direct-sowed them into rows about 14 inches apart and hopefully in a couple weeks I’ll have nice little seedlings popping up all over. Photos to come :)
“Daffodils” - William Wordsworth
I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o’er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.
Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
They stretched in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.
The waves beside them danced; but they
Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:
A poet could not but be gay,
In such a jocund company:
I gazed—and gazed—but little thought
What wealth the show to me had brought:
For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.
Tiny succulent in my succulent garden. I bought them all up in Berkeley at a place called “The Cactus Jungle” with my mom. Fun day full of adventure in which we spent more money than we really should have on plants.
Little baby seeds sprouting in my make-shift sprouting cup haha.
My baby heirloom tomato plants. They actually came up on their own. I had a tomato plant in this pot last season and it died, but before it did, it dropped many of it’s delicious fruits into the soil, thus depositing many many seeds which apparently decided to come up this season. :)
