Thyme Spent in the Garden
Just look at these heirloom cucumber plants. They definitely don't need this much time in a greenhouse and next year I will start them 3-4 weeks before planting starts rather than 8 weeks before. I already had to transplant them in larger pots and stake them because they want to climb all over the place and I'm afraid they will smother the other plants.
Winter Thyme just peaking threw the soil. I ordered more Jiffy 7 planting material and it took a couple weeks for delivery so I started my herb seeds this past weekend - Winter Thyme, Basil, Lavendar, & Cilantro. I think I need another greenhouse. I started a few more cucumbers, squash, eggplant and some more peppers and tomatoes as well as some Moonflowers and Purple Hyacinth Bean Vine.
Four of my pepper plants fell victim to my two year old. While I was patiently staking my tomatoes last night she was sitting on the floor in front of the greenhouse quietly petting my plants and in the process ripped four of them out. That really upset me. Peppers take the longest to germinate and don't produce as much fruit as a cucumber or tomato plant so I hope the last few seeds that I planted germinate quickly.
