Pot of Gold: Planting

"There's a few things I've learned in life: always throw salt over your left shoulder, keep rosemary by your garden gate, plant lavender for good luck, and fall in love whenever you can."
~Alice Hoffman, Practical Magic

Sunday afternoon: The sun was shinning, the birdies were singing, the puppies were walking, and I was planting.

Today I planted 3 flats of teeny, tiny lavender seeds. I neatly filled seed starters, applied just the right amount of moisture, carefully tucked away the seeds, and then gently covered them with a thin blanket of dirt. Thankfully, the little greenhouse lids are already collecting condensation--this just might work!

All fingers are crossed that within the next few weeks some high quality germination occurs.

This is my first attempt at seed planting, and I am oh-so-optimistic.

Good luck with the lavender. We didn't plant today, just walked around the neighborhood and visited. So glad you got to enjoy the nice weather. I am afraid we are being teased. I feel some colder weather is around the corner.
