Last Sunday, I started seeds in containers; chives, cucumbers, dill, basil, and lavender. I really expected nothing to come of it, as I’ve never done this before and figured something – light, water amount, temperature, whatever – would be wrong.
Two nights ago, this pot was nothing but dirt. I didn’t look at it yesterday, but today: cucumber explosion! I am very excited. I may see some success growing these at least, and maybe even success planting them outside in a month or so.
And if I get a crop of cucumbers, I will be beside myself; I just made my first batch of tzatziki sauce, and cucumbers coming up will keep me in tzatziki all summer long. To say nothing of cucumbers + dill (assuming that comes up) = homemade pickles.
