Sisters Are Growing It For Themselves




Category: Horticulture | Posted: Wed Apr 27, 2016 6:06 pm

Say hello to my first soil grown basil of this season!

I got these seeds a few weeks ago and couldn't wait to grow them. I actually got them for the Not So Secret Garden I'm hoping to eventually get but got an extra pack of a few varieties to grow in my windowsill to tide me over until I could get my growing space. The varieties I am attempting to grow are:


1. Mrs Burn's Lemon Basil
2. Lettuce Leaf Basil
3. Sweet Pickle Organic Pepper


In this picture below are seedlings of Mrs Burn's Lemon Basil.

On the Aerogarden front, it has been sixty days since I first started the herbs. I've cut them back several times and they're growing just as strong as ever. I have, thanks to replacements from Aerogrow, 100% germination rates and even an extra pod of Curly Parsley growing off on the side in a medication bottle.

The forecast for the Summer is one of long range high temperatures for my region. Hopefully, the peppers and basil will thrive with all the excess sunlight promised.


We'll see.
