Recap Episode: Regrowing Food from Store-Bought Fruits, Vegetables, Herbs & Spices.

This is more or less a recap episode for a lot of folks - sorry!  I’m trying to keep track of all my “regrow” experiments in a handy list of links for personal reference. When I say “regrow,” I refer to seeds harvested from the plant or propagated from the plant purchased supermarkets and or farmer’s markets.  I’m all for supporting the local nurseries, but these starter plants and unique specifics don’t always come cheap/easily found.  I encourage store-bought planting for new gardeners who may just want to try things before making deeper investments. And do take care to NOT introduce potentially invasive plants into your area.

This practice may rouse some red flags regarding the viability of seeds and the quality of the final product. Yes, I realize planting store-bought items may come with ”uncertainties”. This does not stop me from experimenting while exercising good judgement. And bless you @Biodiverseed for this post that deflects some common worries of planting from commercial seeds.

My tomato plants are basically going, SO I HEARD YOU LIKE TOMATOES

the lemon balm I planted from seed is starting to grow like crazy too. Which is GREAT because I LOVE lemon balm and I have had shit luck growing it from starter plants. I want an entire container full of it.

I have two big pots full of all the leftover soil. I threw the Seedles bombs down in them but those are taking their sweet time to grow. So I chucked in some $1 Target seeds I got last year, but those didn’t sprout. So I got some more $1 Target seeds - daisies and poppies - and one of them is sprouting like crazy and the other sprouted a whole one seedling. So fine. I grabbed a packet of nasturtium seeds today and I have planted nasturtiums in both big pots and a couple to keep the lemon balm company.

I will have flowers, damn it, I may have a random riot of the things but I am going to have flowers.

Nepenthes Ventrata is a hybrid between
Nepenthes Alata and Nepenthes Ventricosa.

It is a very common Nep. found in many commercial green houses and Garden stores.

A great starter plant for someone looking to grow Nepenthes.

                                       “You know, this is why you shouldn’t touch
                                               things that don’t belong to you.”

her fingertips  twitched  steadily  as  she  lets  on  a
gentle sigh. abby was  given  a  potted  plant  for  a
study within class. the small bud of  a  rose  peeked
out from  the  small  cup  she  was  given  not  more
than   an  hour  BEFORE. the  red  head  had  asked
everyone around what to do & that’s when someone
suggest for her to go ask ‘the  plant lady  next  door’. 
the house made her nervous as  she treaded up  the
pathway, but she knew the owner of the house  had
the local flower shop. with an inhale, abby wrapped 
lightly to the door before  stepping  back  slightly to 
wait for  someone  to  answer. looking  down  at the 
small green plant, she raises it to look. 

                   ❛ swear, if you get me in trouble, plant. ❜

I can’t believe how far my garden has come in the last few months, only a few days of work, really! Last year it was all grass and wire fencing. I get mulch tomorrow and get to finish that up, along with the bench soon. Hopefully this year I have fuller beds, it’s certainly starting to look to be the case. Last year I bought plant starters from a local nursery and didn’t water anything like I should have.. And let the beds go to the weeds. So as a dedication to spring, here’s a fun look back at me trying to figure out what I wanted exactly to do with my garden space. I went from grass, to not enough deck squares, to realizing I’d need mulch, to trying to figure out what I should do with those deck squares, to what to do with the entrance!

Vlad opened his eyes after a good night’s rest which very rarely happened to him. However as soon as he opened his eyes, there was a shriek that could be heard throughout the entire mansion. It was dark, it was dark and he couldn’t move.

He thought he was back in space, that he had finally woken up from the dream life he was living that was just too good to be true. 
The real truth was he actually completely covered in vines on his bed.

#SundayFunday: A Seed Starter Box Update

Remember a few weeks ago I had planted some strawberry seeds into a seed starter box out of a toilet paper roll? Sadly, it was unsuccessful.

So I decided to start new ones using flower seeds and vegetable seeds which were given to the kids for Easter. This three pot set was from Target.

And just from a few days ago, we have success!

i found growing herbs from seeds was really hard and i ended up giving in and getting a hydroponics minimachine for those or just buying pre started ones for herbs… herbs are hard.. as for chickens, treat them like over sized finches. seeds, places to hide and shelter along with things to make nests from and they will be happy as clams in the ocean

Good tips! I managed to get the rosemary seeds to germinate (not sure how and not sure why they don’t seem to be growing more) but I’m seriously thinking about just getting starter plants b/c obviously this whole seed germination thing isn’t working out atm.
