Growing stuff

FOR the last number of years I’ve enjoyed making a window box, sometimes from seeds and sometimes from bedding plants. It doesn’t beat having a garden but it’s the next best thing when you do not have one.

I’ve branched out a little this year and spent part of my Friday night planting sunflower seeds (what will I do with them when they grow!) and herbs.

Covered herb seeds 1

Sunflower seeds 1

In place

Some bulbs I prepared earlier, Christmas to be exact1
I bought these bulbs in the Christmas sales and they’ll be ready to come out of their dark cupboard in a week or two. The Young Wan and I are having a race with two of them one is hers and one is mine. At the moment it is a dead heat. Maybe the race should be for which one flowers first.

The three I prepared much much earlier

Everything back in place

But of course none of these are for the window box, I have lavender seeds for that. I need to get them sorted in the next week or two so I get my window box of lavender for the summer.

Have those pots been in the cupboard all along?! Cos when I was in your house I took out plates from there for my Chinese takeaway - er I mean salad - and never noticed them! How blind am I?!

Sunflower seeds, wow. I can't wait to see how you deal with the results of that planting. I've seen them grow to over 12 feet.
