Bed #2 seedlings


Bed #2 seedlings, originally uploaded by Margo and George.

Finally! Over the past few days, things have sprung up! I am pleased to report that in fact, the package and books don't lie - borage leaves do indeed smell like cucumber. Yummy! Sadly the sage in the center row is just struggling along behind all the others, but I still have hope. Borage on the outside looks strongest, radish rows on the next rows inward are looking health, as are the beet rows (next rows, moving inward).

Your seedlings are looking fabulous. I wish I had borage this year. I forgot to add it when I was ordering from catalogs. Then I tried to find it in the local gardening centers, but none of them stocked it. I should keep lists of things to buy but I never do.

Hi Daphne,
Thanks! I am still excited at how fast the little things are growing. Borage - I only found it in - of all places, Russo's Garden Center in Watertown (Waltham?).
As for staying organized, I try...ha ha! But if you're interested, there's a relatively new site that I've been fiddling with that seems to address a bunch of the seeds/grow dates/success/tracking issues I wanted to follow. http://myfolia.com/ So far it hasn't annoyed me, which is pretty good considering it's in beta-testing. That's what little I know.

I've heard of Russo's. I've never been there though.

I'll check out myfolia. I really should be more organized. I used to keep a garden diary years ago that had all the lists and planting dates and such, but that was years ago. I really ought to start doing that again.
