Sowing Sunday - Week 3

Well, all my little seeds have germinated and are currently basking in the glorious sunshine we have in the North West (as am I!)! My strawberries have started to develop what will soon become flowers, and there are little buds on my blueberry bush.  My teeny little radishes are a couple of inches high now, and, very excitingly, my box has started sprouting!

Let me clarify.

As mentioned in my last post, my folks gave me a mystery box of seeds for Christmas that you plant 4" deep and wait for little veggies to appear... and appear they have!  I'd really appreciate it if you could comment and let me know what you think they are.  I think I spy a little lettuce (bottom left) and yet another radish (top right), but other than that, I'm stumped.  Help!

My random box of seeds - but what's sprouted?

Yet again I have garlic breath (the reason for which will become clear in a following post!), but it seems my little veggie babies like the smell of garlic as I continue to breath on them (Ta Anna!), especially the lettuce - look at it go!  

My oregano is starting to look like a bad afro from a 70's porn film, but I kinda like it.  Clearly I need to think up some oregano recipes - my thyme and rosemary is quickly being used up, but this is out of control!

To top off my garden adventures for this week, I've planted some dwarf beans in a little bag.  Nothing exciting to report here just yet, but watch this space.

No post next week, this green fingered girly will be on her holidays!  I'm sure my garden will miss me.

Until next time....
