The one good thing about my edible landscape last year was the virgin soil. As the soil has warmed up over the last couple of weeks, seedlings from last year's flowers have sprung up in the beds. This is great to see in the places I had planned to grow them again this year, but I have a lot of weeding ahead of me. I am transplanting some of the plants into beds where I want them and we will see how they like being moved!
I bought new seed packets of Batchelor's Buttons but I don't think I needed to!
The Rudbeckia does not seem to be coming back but I have patches of self seeded plants emerging which I can transplant.
I have decided to not grow chamomile in this garden this year so all the chamomile seedlings will be dug up and moved or given to friends.
It's actually quite interesting to see how far these seeds have traveled in the garden. If I am careful, I can use these seedlings to recreate my landscape, which fits quite nicely into my frugal and sustainable gardening ethic! For now, I'm going to let some of the plants mature in place so I can see exactly what I have.
I planted lettuce and radishes less than a week ago and the first seedlings are emerging. I have to say, I am happy with how the garden is coming back to life and that it looks interesting already, even with so little growing. The brick paths and pots really help to add definition in this early stage of the garden.
