Update on the Sprouting Seeds

The pumpkins are up! The pumpkins are up! Most of the pumpkin seeds have sprouted and they are reaching for the sunlight (above). I'll need to transplant them to either larger containers or into the ground soon.

The red rubin basil (below) is looking interesting, though not very big yet. It really is a deep burgundy color. It should make some beautiful pesto, assuming it continues to grow.

The thyme (above) and chamomile (below) are looking pretty good. I'm not sure how long before I should transplant them. To be perfectly frank, I wasn't sure my experiment in seed sprouting would get this far.

Any experiments in progress at your place?


  1. I remember growing plants in egg cartons. These look great! {:-Deb

  2. How become kids again and to feel the joy in watching things grow:):)

  3. Your seedlings look great! Mine are always too leggy.

  4. How's the garden going? Any pesto yet?
