Herbs – one week on

080209-marjoram109

Back indoors, there has been a bit of (upward) movement with the herbs.

Both pots of marjoram have germinated and the little sprouts have poked out for a peak. The ones in the relative warmth of the kitchen seem a bit less timid. Upstairs the sprouts get drowned with each watering – no matter how gentle I am.

Three pots of basil are perched on the landing with a south aspect. This evening it is easy to see the tiny sprouts developing leaves. (They’ll taste nice in lasagna – tonight’s dinner.)

Yeah, basil’s easy. But, you need to watch the watering and last year’s crop got a bit furry.

Oh, that alfalfa crop from last week has now been eaten. Another two batches are on the sprouter trays.
