Everything's starting to bloom, bud and grow despite the ice and snow. Even the seeds in my store bought Tomato are sprouting! It was kind of creepy and reminded me of vampires....'cause you know they're a real thing. I had to squeeze them out before adding it to my sandwich. Speaking of which, my garden this year might not happen. I have no home grown seedlings to transplant and if I do grow anything it'll be in pots! I'm thinking herbs- sweet basil, chives, thyme, rosemary, parsley and maybe cilantro. As for veggies, maybe a tomato plant or two- some kind of small variety and a meaty beefsteak kind. If I get to it, maybe some hot peppers too.
See that lonely little spring onion? It's from last year. They are such a hardy little plant and pretty much last all year round if you let them grow and water them from time to time. Plus, bugs don't seem to care for them! I recently stuck six more roots (cut three inches above the root) into the soil, so hopefully in a few weeks I'll have even more to harvest, and all for a grand total of 33¢. I put them in everything- leafy green/pasta/bean salads, hot/cold noodles, in tacos, nachos, sandwiches, garlic bread, rice dishes, into spreads...seriously, on anything and it's delicious.
