I have to say it again, spring moves fast!
These are photos I took less than four weeks ago and forgot to post until now. What at the time were two-leaved sprouts in a tiny greenhouse on Anke’s balcony have since been transplanted and are flourishing in our community garden.
“Tiny greenhouse” isn’t the correct term – that would be “cold frame” – but I was charmed by how small this one was and how much it resembled a doll-sized hothouse. The pots are biodegradable: the brown ones to the left are store-bought and made of peat moss, but the others are homemade from old newspapers. Anke got the idea from this nice visual mini-how-to blog entry. The plants are yellow zucchini (big round leaves), lettuce (little red-green leaves) and cosmos (feathery leaves). I inherited the remaining four seeds from the yellow zucchini packet and they are now repeating history on my kitchen counter.
I’ll make some pictures from the plants in their new home, next time I’m in the garden.
