When we decided we wanted to make part of the patio more private (it's ground level in our building, and open on the left and top) I did some research and came to Morning Glory. Growing about 10 ft with large heart shaped leaves - the flowers were just a bonus. The variety I chose is Ink Spots, a newer variety that has shades of purple and white. I was going to plant them on the 16th when I planted the vegetables, but I forgot to soak them. Soaking them over night it supposed to speed up germination, so I popped them in the bowl of water and left them until the next day.
On the 17th I planted them in the same seed tray as the veggies, watered them, put the dome on top and went on.
I try really hard to not look at the seedlings 5 times a day waiting for one to pop, I get impatient. So when I sneaked a peek on the 19th I was shocked, and excited to see this:
And this morning even more shocked to see THIS:
My Thyme seeds have also popped today! However their seedlings are very tiny, I don't think my camera would capture it properly.
Yesterday was me and K's 2nd anniversary. He is so wonderful. He brought me a bouquet of bright gerbera daisies, and some seeds so we can plant them together and enjoy them longer - I think that is so romantic :)
He also brought me Final Fantasy Origins (yes I am a gardener, a knitter, and a nerd). We had a perfect day, followed by a perfect dinner. I've never been so happy in my life.
