Today, January 27, it's raining in Minnesota. We had a drought last summer and NOW it decides to rain. I remember a few ice storms years past, but not in January. How does a gardener cope? One way is to page through the seed catalogs that began arriving last month and plan the garden. It's a lot like the prisoner who completely built a house, in his mind of course, while in captivity. Another coping strategy is to plant something. A week ago I planted some Basil, Cilantro, Parsley, and bunching onions. Today there are green shoots in the GrowCenter.
Here are the seeds in the packs
And these are the Basil seedlings
It should be noted that these are Burpee Organic Sweet Basil seeds. They cost $2.49 at Walmart! What the hell was I thinking when I bought them???
