Seedlings return home


Wow where the heck is this year going and why does it need to get there so darn fast!!! It seems like just yesterday we were ringing in the New Year and now here we are almost half way through 2012! How depressing is that....okay don’t think about it and it isn’t that bad..LOL

I haven’t had a lot of updates about my seedlings on here since they were still at my mother in laws house. However after telling everyone that I wanted them back they finally came home last night. Not all of them, but as much as the back seat of the tuck could carry, which was only 2 trays and a light... I was informed that everything needed to be transplanted into bigger containers so I figured I would just do that myself. I go in for surgery Friday morning so I better get them transplanted before then..cause I am already freaking out and thinking that I won’t wake up from the surgery so maybe this will take my mind off of that for a bit!

Almost all of the seedlings are doing just great. Here are the cauliflower and broccoli. I am going to transplant them today

along with the pickling onions



This is the purple basil and the sweet basil


Parsley and artichokes


Now here is where things get confusing. When my MIL transplanted some of the seedlings she didn’t know which side she took things from. I had them marked but at home and I didn’t know she was going to uproot anything while we were away. This means I have pumpkins and spaghetti squash that I don’t know which are which as well as this.

I think these are my peppers and eggplants


However that means that these should be my oregano and mint....neither which have come up. 
 Well this one came up a wee bit, but that is it.




So there you go that is a look into my 2012 seedlings. I still have cabbage, leeks, and Brussels sprouts along with the pumpkins and spaghetti squash over at the farm. As long as everything goes well on Friday they will hopefully make it here next week.

  1. Hope your surgery is minor and goes well! Purple basil looks neat! I've never seen one. Does it taste the same as regular basil?

  2. Good luck with that surgery. And if you need some mint or oregano I can send you cuttings. I can't promise they will root, but they are in the mint family. They usually root in just a glass of water.

  3. Welcome home little seedlings :)

    Good luck on Friday. I'm sure everything will go well and you'll then kick yourself for freaking out. I say this with confidence because I'm exactly like you and obsess over worst case a little too much.

    Heal well, and see you next week

  4. Of course, you'll wake up from the surgery!! You have to weed the garden this summer!

  5. I'll be thinking of you Friday. I hope your surgery is minor and you bounce back quickly. Would you mind sharing some purple basil later one?

    Take care,
