Planting Sage, Growing Mold…I’m Abut to Give Up!

March 1, 2011

Planting Sage, growing mold. Ugh! I’m about to give up! Seed starting is not for me.

I read a post this week from a new twitter friend, @mrbrownthumb,
about his unconvincinal paper weight garden… loved it, want one!

..and couincidently, had my own mold problem in the garden this week.

My sage is following in the lettuce’s footsteps and not growing!…
Well, not exactly. I grew mold.

Indoor gardening: I’m done with you! (Slam the door) I’m going outside.


I have been saving up recyclables so that I can do some outdoor sowing soon. Maybe I will have better luck here.

The Rosemary is looking a little pale and sad so I think it’s time to
go outside, whether permitted.

Despite all the rain, my outdoor garden is doing quite well. I found
sprouts of Romaine from when I planted with my mom earlier this month.

Last year, I was overcome by the rain… In the garden at theBlue Bungalow we go full circle with the elements… First, it’s rain-rain-go away! Then…helicopter seeds, pine needles, weeds and crab grass.






…and new this year, tornado and high winds.

Luckily, my trellis stood the test of twine. (PI) I was able to work on it more this week…a couple more days like this and it will be ready to go.

I brought my potted Lavander inside for some TLC. I hope to get a good yield from this little one come spring.

Intermittely throughout the rain and high winds this past week we got a little bit of sunshine and I was motivated to put up my swing. This is my all time favorite thinking/posting spot and I will be glad to enjoy many summer afternoons -post work and daily duties- sitting here with bowser and my iPad waiting on the Mr.

    Thanks for the link. The white fuzzy mold is an indication that your medium and pots are staying wet too long. Is there a way you can add some extra air circulation there with something like a fan?

      No Prob. Loved the post!

      … Will do, one the fan. Thanks for the advice.

    If it’s getting too moldly, try using a starter soil, like Jiffy or other. I use recycled plastic containers for seed starters.

      Ironically, I did use Jiffy. I am going to give it one more try inside later on this week with air circulation. Luckily, it has warmed up here so I think it’s about time to fix up my outdoor sowing in the recyclables. Maybe I will have a better go at this.

      Thanks for the comment!
