Pots of Herbs and Such

Here's what's popped up so far from my little potting spree:

 I didn't expect both seeds to germinate so that was a nice surprise!  I'll try to split them and get 6 new Roselle plants!

Goji Berry
The pot on the right has just sprouted, but it's hard to see.  There's a third pot which I hope will also sprout.  I'm very excited to have Goji berry growing!

Holy Basil and Mrs. Burns Lemon Basil
 I've never grown either of these and you certainly don't come across them at the big box stores.  So I'm hoping these will do well for me once I get them in the ground.

Sweet Basil and Lime Basil
I've never grown Lime basil either.  I've heard good things about it.

Amethyst Basil and Sweet Basil
The amethyst basil should be interesting looking.  I planted a few sweet basil pots, cause I just can't have too much of that.


I got distracted when the hubby got home from work and didn't take pics of all these square plastic pots, which are mini hugelkultur pots.  I put sticks in the bottom, then mulch, then soil.

The pot on the left - Anise Hyssop - hasn't sprouted yet.  There are a few others that haven't sprouted yet; marjoram, garlic chives and I think parsley.

All in all, I'm pleased with the progress. You just never know here in Florida, we have lots of obstacles to overcome including slugs, snails, and a million bugs to out smart!


  1. I swear, there's nothing quite like sprouting seeds! It's like magic. :-)

  2. I'm so excited about my goji berry seeds sprouting! All three are up now. Yay!
