Beginners Veggie and Herb Garden: Day 6

I came down this morning and to my delight there were new sprouts. 4 of my yellow grape tomato cells have sprouted…only 1 to go! Additionally, 3 regular tomato cells sprouted overnight.

The snap pea tendrils are looking more and more devilish every day and a third snap pea cell sprouted.

The thyme sprouts are all slowly growing little brownish red dots on their ends. I guess those are what will eventually actually be the thyme leaves. All 5 of those cells have now sprouted! I better start thinking up thyme desserts too! I’m guessing there will be lots of simple syrups in my family’s future.

Most of the basil cells look like the soil is being pushed up, so hopefully tomorrow morning there will be basil sprouts!

In total so far we have sprouted:

  • 5 tarragon cells
  • 5 thyme cells
  • 3 cilantro cells
  • 1 chive cell
  • 3 snap pea cells
  • 4 yellow grape tomato cells
  • 3 tomato cells
  • 1 zucchini cell

And as promised, I just had to rectify the issue of not having planted any mint initially, so I went ahead and did that this morning, along with cantaloupe, cucumbers, and eggplants! Can’t wait to see how those sprouts look!
