Dirt Under my Fingernails


We finally hit double digits, and the snow has melted. Though our sun room isn’t warm enough overnight for my sprouts, I did take some time today to transplant the beefsteak tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, basil and thyme.

Dirt under my fingernails again. It’s been a long time. This is what makes me happy.

  1. Agreed. Dirt is a very good thing! That thyme looks fantastic! Di you start it from seeds? Way to go!

    • Hi Lauren! I started all the plants from seeds. The thyme would make great pepper-flavoured sprouts in a sandwich right now, but I want them to grow to plant proportions so I can just pick fresh sprigs for cooking. That will be a couple of months til then!
