Arugula Seedlings Growing in February

I Can’t Stop Planting Things

February 29, 2012 Botanical, Gardening 0 Comments

There’s something a little bit addictive about planting things and watching them grow. I’ve had a lot of fun over the past year planting baby trees, some different seeds and bulbs of all sorts. I started the above arugula seedlings just over a week ago. They should be ready to eat in a few weeks. I think they’re growing just a bit too quickly…hopefully they won’t be too bitter. I guess it’s salad-eating time again! My pants will thank me.

 

Crocus Eyes Have Emerged

The Crocuses Are Awake!

February 1, 2012 Botanical, Gardening, Nature 0 Comments

I planted a bunch of crocus bulbs and some tulip bulbs at the end of December and the crocuses have already popped through! With the exception of a few days here and there this has been a really mild January for the Atlanta area. Not that our winters are usually that bad, but this year has definitely been abnormal. I have a feeling that we’re going to pay for this unseasonal warmth with some crazy cold March that will kill all the buds on the trees. This is the first time that I have planted bulbs in the ground (I planted some in a pot last spring that didn’t quite do what they were supposed to)…I’ll probably find out this spring just how many bunnies I have in my yard. I hear they like crocuses.
