Garden: Week 4

Week 4 of the garden is bringing a tad more confidence. Things are still growing and I haven’t managed to kill any more little seedlings. Of course that possibility still lingers but luckily things are looking a bit hardier.

Thyme & Rosemary are the slowest starters. Seeing moderate growth but nothing extreme.

The chives are much taller but still looking a bit sparse. Hoping they fill in a little.

Last week (above) the cilantro wasn’t much more than sprouts. This week, it’s starting to look like actual cilantro, with the fan leaves instead of the longer, skinnier ones.


Basil is still growing like gangbusters. If you put your face real close, it smells divine.

A second flat joined the window last week but it wasn’t much more than a flat of dirt.


This week, things have sprouted! Half flat of tomatoes & a half flat of carnival peppers.




My office window is turning into quite the little greenhouse.

  1. Your plants look awesome! My cilantro is a little spindly this year. I dont’ think my windows get enough sun for them with the UV protection on the glass.

    Wow, your seedlings look really great! In my experience rosemary takes FOREVER to start and cilantro is pretty slow. What are you using for seed starting medium?
