So, I guess I shouldn't call something an actual success until it's actually successful. My oh so successful seed starts? Yeah, not so much.
Luckily last Friday Seattle Tilth was having their "leftover" plant sale- which worked out perfectly for me. $2 starts, with lots of really fun and interesting varieties. I don't know why I did this- but I ended up buying a significant number of tomato and pepper starts- more or less spacing out the fact that our patio gets only morning sun. We are actually trying to move to a different (larger) unit in our building right now, so I'm hoping if that comes through it will mean more sun.
I took half of the day off from work today. For no real reason other than it sounded like a nice idea. Sometimes you just need a little time to do nothing. I came home, took a nap with Luna, and then in an effort to continue avoiding my math homework- made a crazy dirty mess all over my patio, which luckily resulted in a few plants in pots. I ran out of potting soil, so the rest will have to happen this weekend.
My un-official plant list at the moment? Potatoes (which have been growing for a while- they're in the black and white plastic grow bag and doing SO well), pineapple sage, peppermint, fennel, strawberries, two varieties of blueberries (another that I've had going for a while, also doing great!), cat mint, lavender from last year, and three varieties each of tomatoes and peppers.
What are you growing this year? Any suggestions for full-sun plants that aren't getting full sun?
