Planting from seed

Planting from seed

Planted Greek oregano (Oreganum vulgare L.), mixed Italian lettuce leaves 1, rocket (Diplotaxis erucoides) and a lemon variety of sweet basil (Ocimum basilicum var citriodorum) in a seed tray in the kitchen two Saturdays ago (18 September 2004).

Of course, continuing my gardener ingenu thing, I planted four rows of seed and forgot to mark which is which;-) Anyway, one row now looks like a bushy lawn and the other three are satisfyingly sprouty. My guess is that it’s way too late in the year to be planting soft fleshy things, but I’ll see how far I get with pots on the windowsill…
