Sweet Little Seedlings

Last year my best laid plans went completely awry. I planned to plant a little vegetable garden. It was going to reside on my flat roof, give me a steady supply of fresh veggies, and an enormous sense of well-beingand accomplishment. However, life got in the way, and I neither bought compost, nor planted a bean.

This year therefore, I was determined. As soon as the weather started getting a little warmer (which was mid March here), I washed out some old yoghurt pots and planted up. I thought I'd start small, and build from there once I feel flushed with success. So for my friend over at Beauty Loves the Beast, here are my little seedlings:

Aren't they cute?! I look at them and squeak with excitement at least twice a day. On the right are my french beans, and on the left what will be a courgette plant. Nom, nom, nom. I love courgettes. These two little plants are about 2 weeks old. They should be going into bigger pots and start living outside in about a fortnights' time. I plan to also plant up some salad, some basil, some tomatoes, and I'm already growing a frothy mass of coriander on its way (not pictured 'cos I don't think it looks very pretty at the moment, sorry coriander).

I found the BBC's Dig In website super useful. It was these helpful chaps that sent me the seeds last year, and it seems to cater to first-time gardeners like me (read: clueless).

    cope with her maturing body, and desperately wishes that all of her developing parts would stop jiggling.

  2. Ever wondered how those contestants in bodybuilding competitors make their bodies look
    so defined? In the beginning you could think it's due to the fact that they normally look by doing this or perhaps due to how show business lights struck them yet think it or not, bodybuilders utilize sunless tanning or tanning creams in order to accomplish that "tough as granite" appearance, to flaunt sharply-defined shoulders, biceps and abdominals that the judges and audience admire a lot.

  3. The majority of loan applications by individuals with bad credit are rejected by lenders.
    With a bad credit payday loan it is created for
    individuals with bad credit and almost everybody
    is approved. Lenders have the ability to do this since your payment is instantly subtracted from your
    account on payday. This suggests that the lender makes
    sure you are visiting have the ability to repay the
    cash you have actually borrowed from them.

  4. One of the most effective ways to create back hyperlinks
    for your web company and you can do this by just creating to
    various other blogs. It brings huge web traffic to your internet site if
    you make some excellent and fresh blog post offering your back-link on others blog sites.

  5. When starting in the SEO world, I made use of the complimentary
    Google keyword recommendation device. Certainly this tool is often much better than some of the premium tools out there, and the details is pulled
    straight from Google (no middle guy so to speak), so you can assume the details is as trusted as you can
