Seed Update...

They're heeeere!
 I was beginning to worry but here come the sprouts! The Skyscraper Sunflowers and the Indian Summer Hollyhocks are on the move - still no sign of life from the Minibels or the foxglove, but will keep you posted.
It was so much fun to check on the pots and see green!


  1. Very exciting, I know, lol. I have been growing lemon plants from seeds extracted from store-bought lemons since the first of Feb! They're so little, but I have plants! And I blogged all about it. :) I'm just happy the worst of my winter is behind me - West Virginia.

  2. Hello Rita! I just read your post on propagating the lemon seeds at WVPanoply.blogspot.com - and it was awesome! You definitely understand where I am coming from. Since I am in SoCal, I leave the plants outside but cover them at night -it's sort of like tucking them in :)
    -the next challenge is keeping them moist! Still, it has been fun and I am excited about the spring/summer possibilities! I love lemons and may have to try your step by step process - perhaps then I could stop begging from my neighbors! Thanks for stopping by -and keep me posted about your plants! -Bonnie

  3. Bonnie, I count on you now to receive lemons! Your baby sprouts are so cute! I hope they were all born with the will to thrive. :)

  4. Thanks, Leslie! Me too!! It might take a while for me to grow a lemon tree, so in the meantime...I am grateful for yours!!
