Planting on Imbolc

My little shoots

My little shoots

Saturday, February 1, 2014
First Quarter Moon in Aquarius
Celtic Tree Month of Rowan
Cloudy and mild

I thought you’d enjoy a photo of the little, tiny shoots coming up. In the background are the apple. Foreground, left, the pear, foreground right, peppers.

Nothing so far from the garlic, carrots, or radishes, yet.

Today, I planted sweet peas (soaked ‘em last night), leeks, two kinds of eggplants, mesculun greens, sage, oregano, echinacea, rosemary, and lime basil. Fingers crossed this year is a better year for basil than last year!

Some of the tulips in pots in the garage are already coming up — guess I’ll have to move them inside soon. Pretty exciting, all the way around!

And, of course, as soon as I planted and cleaned up, the newest catalog from Johnny’s arrived, so I can indulge.

Good times.
