a lil garden OCD

yep, i'm a wee bit obsessed! everything at the forefront of my thoughts is garden related, and being under the weather unable to workout has not helped to distract me from my green itch =/ so been reading all the blog post possible and joining all the FB pages about gardening, balcony gardening, container gardening, urban gardening, even punk rock gardening!! yes, i know, lol!

well, for the most part my seedlings are doing there thing. i suppose? how do i know? i need a week by week picture guide of what they should look like...tomorrow will be one week since i've planted them and everything is sprouting up except for my spearmint and rosemary, what the heck?! basil - up. supposed to be 7-14 days.check. thyme - up. should be 14 - 21 days, woot! check. dill - up, should be 10-21 days, so yay! spearmint should germinate in 7-14 days and....NADA ={ rosemary germs in 14-21, so, i'm not too worried about that.



on another note, my balcony/garden makeover is coming along...




this is only a week of focus/work, can't wait to see what's to come!
go me!!! =p

  1. Rosemary takes ages to germinate. Be patient with them. :o)

  2. I was going to say what Jessica said. Many plants need several weeks (and some even more than a month) to germinate. It can be hard to stay focused on seed starting for that long, but if you do, you'll be rewarded with healthy plants that cost you pennies as opposed to dollars.
