When I got home from work yesterday, I took an old aluminum pan and filled it with potting soil. I made about 16 holes and placed 2 or 3 chili pepper seeds in each one. I covered them with more soil, sprinkled them with water, and covered the pan with plastic wrap.
Voila! Instant mini-Greenhouse.
I placed the pan on a table under the window. Hopefully, in about a week, the seeds will sprout.
I am farmer. Hear me roar!
My sweet basil and parsley are also looking good. The few surviving sprigs of cilantro and dill are also hardy and strong.
I am wondering if I should transfer them to outside or leave them in my kitchen window sill - which, admittedly, would be more convenient for cooking.
This weekend, I will scatter the marigold seeds in the mulched area under my window in hopes that they will be growing by the time I plant tomatoes there next month.
Mmm... tomatoes. Very excited about having home-grown tomatoes.
In other news, I did laundry. I knitted. And, I watched Tsotsi, which was an absolutely amazing, beautiful film. Loved it.
I am supposed to go to a Johnnie Walker tasting tonight, but I think I am going to cancel. So tired. Not sleeping well. I want to go to bed now.
Plus, I have a big weekend ahead - planting marigolds, experimental felting in the kitchen sink, knitting, cleaning the bathroom, hanging pictures. I need to rest up.
