April is the cruelest month. It is here anyway. One minute you're blinding people with the glare off your white legs in your shorty-shorts, the next you're wondering where you put your parka. Yep, April is a real SOB that way.
Ever since the snow melted last month, I've had that familiar antsy feeling of wanting to make something grow. I could bang on the garden centre doors with zombie-like persistence ("plaaaants") but they won't open until May. Since April's unpredictability makes it hard to know what to plant outdoors when, it's a gamble to start sowing the outdoor vegetable garden. So instead, I started a little indoor project.
Grow Great Grub gave me the idea to grow windowsill gardens. There's a variety of things you can grow but I went with lettuce and radish sprouts.
At first, I had my doubts about the lettuce; it looked rather sad. But after moving it to a different window, it perked up and I've been able to pick a few leaves.
The radishes, on the other hand, are idiot proof. Some dirt in a plastic container, radish seeds, water and sun, and you got yourself some tasty radish sprouts in about a week. They're a nice addition to a salad or sandwich.
Got any garden pics to share? I'd love to see them. Springify me!
