Spring #saffron check-in. Took the wire off the bed, and combed through all the leaves, looking for ANYTHING that wasn't saffron and weeding it out if that was the case. This is when it's imperative to get out any grass runners that might be trying to start.
I'm hoping for strawberry seedlings any day now, if last year gives me any clue, so we'll see how they fare. want to be swimming in berries!! one day!!
i've gotten two surprise apple seedlings. from the compost. they seem happy as can be. they don't even care. will probably move them and try to bonsai them or something bc why not.
oregano sprouts seem pretty happy so far. slow growing, but not unusually so, i'd say. bright green.
rosemary really seems to like relatively chilly temperatures to sprout. i didn't expect to get seedlings so soon if at all (two of them!), but i guess i just planted when it was too warm in the past. unfortunately, they also look pretty unwell.
i planted thyme in two cups. all the sprouts in one cup died, and in the other cup they still look a little sickly. they're still growing, so I guess I'm hoping they'll recover.
A floral butterfly.
I've gone with an orange and yellow theme this time.
i have yet to see a lot of flower/plant activity around here yet, but ...
i found this super cool lil piece of lichen today with really prominent apothecia (fungal reproductive structures)!
Crocus vernus, aka the spring crocus, getting ready to do its spring thing. #florespondence
