When your seedlings fail there is an air of disappointment that makes you feel like giving up, forgetting about this season’s garden and moving onto a different passion. Usually, you eventually give into the irresistible seedlings available at local farmer’s markets or hardware stores because nothing beats vine-ripened tomatoes. Well, that has been our experience in all the years past.

Not so this year. This year we tell a different tale, and the possibilities are unveiling themselves daily! For example, because we’ve had such success with our new seed-starting methods (i.e. the grow light adjustments and sweet greenhouse blessing), we have broadened our own horizons. So far, all the seeds we’ve planted have thrived and it’s thrilling! Just goes to show that good things come to those who are persistent (keep in mind we have been doing this seed-thing for over 6 years).

Today’s new venture? Well, upon recent cleaning of the fridge we discovered a bag of medicinal herbal seeds that we purchased and used about 5 years ago. Now, we knew they were kicking around in there, but we didn’t have a lot of success with them during the first trial, so they’d been neglected. Some Chamomile, Valerian, Feverfew and Milk Thistle–some of which still litters our yard. But, we’re thinking with the aid of the greenhouse we may have some actual herb activity! We’ll keep you posted, their age may prove a detriment…

Here’s what we’re hoping will sprout:

    I sadly have not had the energy for my blog lately, but my (our) garden is growing quite well! My dad reports that he even harvested broccoli today. Things are coming up all over, and I can't wait to start getting more harvest. 😀

    Those tomato plants look great!! I'm envious;) We have had a hard time learning what to do for them. Grow lights, fans, less water and more but they still don't look like that.

    My daughter, using her Apologia science, made a grow hut out of a cardboard box. She has all sorts of seeds sprouted into gorgeous plants! She's so excited and so am I. I need to blog about it on my family blog but haven't had the time. Homeschooling has been great this year!
