Gardening In the Kitchen
I've started a few seeds so far, and they're parked on the kitchen counter by the most convenient window. This is by no means ideal, as we have to keep moving them around when we're washing dishes, and they don't really get as much light as I'd like. I would love a nice set of grow-lights so that I could get the season started nice and early but still out of the way, but it's a little pricey, so I'm happy to make do.
The cosmos only took two days to germinate, with a small portion of the morning glories just a few days behind, and the cosmos are pictured below to show just how tall they sprouted in five days. I expect they'll be reaching too far over to try and get at the sun in no time, and end up spindly and weak. Next time, I'll start them a bit later, I think. Ah well, it's fun watching them grow all the same.
