Looks as if Anne is right. The seedlings are decidedly leggy and outgrowing their strength, as my grandma used to say. Actually grandma said that any time I was feeling “poorly.” I was never ill, just outgrowing my strength.
Moving on, I wonder how long I can keep these little guys alive………
I’ve started my garden since I think the first step in saving money on food is to grow your own. I’ve never had any luck with starting seeds indoors, so we’ll see how this experiment turns out. I planted two kinds of lettuce, basil, and turnip (don’t ask) just to see what happens. If I fail again, there will still be time to start more seeds. Usually I get damping off or some other blight that kills the seedlings. Although the seed packets said that the seeds needed 5 to 10 days to sprout, some are already up on day 3, so I’ve moved the tray into the light. I’ll watch and report weekly. Here’s hoping for some luck this year.
Today Steph goes back to Turkey, so I’ll be lonely for a while until I adjust. She did some Turkish food prep that was tasty and terrific, so some Turkish recipes will find their way onto this blog! She was also my co-teacher in my ESL class this week and the “students” loved her! It’s been great.
Enjoyed reading Stephanie’s blog today. Good going, Steph! Interesting articles.
Thanks to the World Wide Web, we can locate friends half way around the world. Was there ever such a good time to be on the planet?!
