I transplanted my beans and zucchini and I am hoping they don’t get too big for the pots before I can put them in the garden — which will be nearly a month! They have only been in there about three weeks.
The tomatoes are coming along but luckily they won’t need repotting for a week or more. They will need thinning as well. It’s a bit of a problem finding enough room under the grow light. So I have already had to move a flat of lettuce into a window.
Onions and wildflowers. I need to use some green onions here directly. I started some more of those and they will grow again as you use them, so will likely use some in the sauteed mushrooms tonight. Wildflowers coming along.
Teeny tiny petunias! Look closely! I was afraid we weren’t going to get any, but several containers have them starting finally. I also have lots of sweet peppers going but they will take a good long time before repotting is necessary. But I have only one jalapeno so far! So am hoping those are just taking their sweet (hot) time.
I really hadn’t figured in space under the grow lights once I repot tomatoes, beans, zucchini, and and peppers. A problem that will need solving. Herbs will have to be moved into a window temporarily–I plan to keep some inside, put some in the garden. The lettuce and herbs will stay in flats and go right into the garden or some gift pots.
I already have chives coming up outside and mint and it appears oregano and thyme and sage made it through the winter. Can’t decide if I pull them out and start over yet. Will see how flavorful they are since they are taking up a lot of the garden.
But t his has been wildly successful so far!
Happy Thursday again!

I love words so I write them. I’ve been doing that since I was old enough to read. I am a published literary writer and I was an adjunct English professor at Northern Michigan University for many years. I write and live and love off the grid on 35 acres and a trout stream in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula with my son, Joshua, who has Down Syndrome, and with an English Shepherd dog named Maggie, and with my husband when he can make it here which isn’t often. This blog started out being about my work, and it will continue to be. ( I’m working on a novel about premonitions and dreams.) But this blog is also about living off the grid and about my experimentation with diet—most recently the Carnivore Diet. I started on the Ketogenic diet, but have moved into Carnivore. How long, I don’t know. But I’ve become interest in the effects of diet on not just my health, but on creativity. And I’m interested in the effects of the diet on my dreams.
Ah, dreams... The day before my son was born, my mother “dreamed” or was told my son would have Down Syndrome, something she told my brother ahead of time. I’ve never known what to make of that. So I’m interested in prophetic dreams, lucid dreaming, creativity and dreams, night terrors. Who isn't interested in that? I’m interested in Freud (more Jung) and Einstein’s theories of time and how their ideas inform my dreams. I’m interested in mining a deeper relationship with a dream world not confined to daytime experiences, and how the night might inform a more fully imagined daytime “reality.” And vice-versa. Which is the dream?? I’m exploring dreams of all sorts. Come explore with me…

Wow Lynn. Its’ amazing how you do it. I have no clue how to go about growing vegetables though I’d love to. I guess you need loads of patience and knowledge of-course to do it.
Amazing strike rate Lynn!
