Garden Update 2
My cantaloupe grew a foot last weekend!
That picture is from Monday morning. It's actually a few inches higher now but it definately did a ton of growing this weekend. It's been cloudy and rainy all week, but the sun is going to shine today and tomorrow so I suspect everything will burst again.
Yesterday, I planted a couple of Stevia plants, just because the idea of growing my own sugar sounds like fun.
I also decided I need more than 5 basil plants, so I bought a $6 herb garden at Lowe's that has 36 little containers. It came with 6 different herbs but I only planted Basil, Sage, and Chives - 12 of each. It's sitting in the kitchen corner window where it gets light but no direct sun, a fine place to germinate seeds.
I also seeded 8 "small" sunflower plants (a colorful variety that only gets 4-5' tall), and 9 perennial lupines. I did these in 2" Jiffy Pots. The lupines will probably take 3-4 weeks to germinate because I didn't follow the "hastening" instructions. I didn't feel like chilling them in the fridge, then nicking the hard seed shell and soaking them overnight.
