Looking Good

Because it’s a bad week to plant anything in the garden according to the Lunar Calendar, I’m sitting on my hands for a few days. All I can do is wait (I’m not a patient person so this is harder than you’d think), fertilise (I added liquid fertiliser to all my edibles yesterday) and weed (been doing some of that but it hardly takes all my time).

This is my herb pot on my kitchen pass-through window. The thyme and chives are there, but they struggle. But my parsley seeds look like they’re going to do pretty well. I planted them 5 1/2 weeks ago (in the first quarter as opposed to new moon which would have been the most auspicious phase to plant them in). They may be slow growers, but they are steadily improving.

    May I just say, this looks pathetic.

    Are you able to trim and use them in your cooking? At least it’s all green!

  2. The parsley is still a baby – no cutting for quite a while yet. I do use the chives in cooking and I’ve noticed I get a growth spurt every time I cut them back. The thyme seems to be turning into a fossil. I suppose I should try cutting some, it might encourage growth.
