Dill, Coriander and Tarragon – Lunar sprouting

Dill sproutsTarragon sproutsOn the left are some dill sprouts – I’m not positive which of this lot are the dill sprouts and which are weeds. On the right are more sprouts. I’m hopeful these are tarragon. They’re in the right place anyway.

Coriander sproutsNext is an intrepid row of corainder sprouts that have survived Tash’s onslaught. In fact, she left another deposit overnight. I’ve put even more branches around and over these seedlings. When it stops raining long enough (daily showers this week) I’ll try squirting essential oils around the place.

HorseradishCheck out the horseradish. This one’s in the sunflower bed and gets lots of sun and looks great. It’s sibling went into the ginger bed and has more, but significantly smaller leaves.

All 4 of these varieties of plants were put in the ground 12 days ago as seeds/roots.  Everything from that lunar planting is coming up well except the thyme (which I may have pulled up in my enthusiastic weeding or at least disturbed but since isn’t due to sprout for 12-14 days after planting there is still some hope) and, of  course, the ginger, which was the primary object of the timing of that planting – but I know it is a slow shooter so I’m not worried….yet.

More aphid and stink bug squashing. We seem to be getting on top of both those pests (only Tash remains undeterred).
