So it begins: the garden

I started seeds in the technogarden on March 3rd, that being 60 days before our projected last freeze.

Now, less than a month before Planting Day, they’re HUGE, and some plants are dwarfing others. I spent some time last night potting some of the plugs, to give more room all around.
Technogarden, redux

It was surprising how much of a root system they had developed – I’m hoping they’ll transfer well to dirt. Here’s one of the three cabbage plants:

I’m pleased to get to use my silver Sharpie:

Now, if the technogarden held the only seeds I had planted, I would have enough plants to fill my whole garden (it’s 16’x11′) – but oh no. No. My plans are for plant domination:
Seedlings, not egglings

Everything’s so healthy, I’m going to give away some of the peppers (I planted 6 each of 5 varieties – what was I thinking?), and others that sprouted so well. The only disappointment so far has been the lavender – it just never sprouted.


Last night Michele came over, and we had breakfast for dinner. Gluten-free pancakes and pumpkin butter, sausages, and tiny little potatoes from the garden. The potatoes were fried in oil with salt, pepper, rosemary, Webers mustard, and maple syrup.

I keep thinking about the potatoes. I think I’m in love with the potatoes. I may make them again for lunch. We have so many tiny potatoes, I could eat them every day for a week.
