I love spring. I take pleasure in seeing my garden mature. I also enjoy watching seeds turn to plants. I’m like a kid; I check my little paper pots everyday to see if a seed has sprouted. If ever there were something to be considered a miracle – it is a beautiful plant born from a seed no bigger than a pin’s head.
This year, I started my seeds in origami paper pots. I was inspired by a very informative video for constructing paper pots for seedlings. The great thing is when the plants have matured enough to endure the elements, I can plant the entire pot. The paper will dissolve. Making these seed pots is a pleasant project to work on while watching TV.
Other good things are already growing in the garden.
Have you ever wondered what would happen if you planted an onion that sprouted in your refrigerator?
I grow an abundance of herbs (rosemary, thyme, onion and garlic chives, two varieties of mint, bergamot, etc.). Here is a view of a sage plant. I let it blossom so that the bees can enjoy it. I plant for myself and for the bees which need all the help they can get these days. Purple and blue flowers are most attractive to bees.
A garden is incomplete without flowering plants.
