I spent the past two days cleaning out weeds and pruning dead matter from plants. Today, I finally got around to planting some items. Before listing them, let me tell you how happy I am for organizing my seeds into a gardening folder. Having everything labeled inside its little pouch made it so much easier to find items. Last week, I planted oregano, tarragon, marjoram and thyme seeds and will plant out more again next week. Today I planted flats of seeds of:
When I went through the unsorted seeds, I found that I have a lot of flower seeds. I could probably open a business with the sheer number of seeds. I’m considering planting a flower border along the chain-link fence on the south side of the property. The only thing stopping me is that the house gardeners just killed all the succulent pups I planted there 3 weeks ago. Jerks.
The volunteer plants in the bed are doing so much better than expected. I tried some of the lettuce today and it was so sweet. Definitely having some for dinner tonight. There is already fruit on 3 of the tomato volunteers. That’s kind of worrying because I don’t want the lettuce and spinach to bolt. I’m still wondering about the identity of the plants below. The plants with the serrated leaves are all over the garden bed. I know I’ve grown this before I just can not remember.
After staring at the pictures for awhile, I notice some slight differences between the two plants. The top plant reminds me of a mint…maybe radish leaves. The bottom plant looks more like mustard greens. I’m sure I planted seeds for both last year.
Anyway, if you have an idea of what these could be, please tell me. It’s starting to annoy me that I don’t know how to take care of the plants.
