Poof..... and Back Again

So yeah.  It's been a while.

About a year.

Sorry about that.

Life got.... interesting.  It hasn't really gotten any less interesting, either.  But, I'm back, and I'm going to, again, try to keep up with this.

So I am, again, gardening this year.  Already have almost everything that I want to grow starting from seed.  I'm going to post pictures later, when I can figure out how to get them from my phone to the computer without dealing with posting to Facebook.

So far this year:

English Munstead Lavender
Lavendar Vera
White Horehound
Thyme, common
Valerian, common
Sweet Marjoram
Wild Bergamot (No idea why this is called "wild", since I'm going to cultivate it, variety type, maybe?)
Lemon Balm

Veggies:  Even though some of these are really fruits, w/e)
Sweet Cherry Tomato
Cal Wonder Peppers (Bell Peppers)
Pineapple Tomatillo
Crimson Sprinter Tomato
Lettuce - Leaf Tango
Lettuce - Black Seeded Simpson
Lettuce - Green Salad Bowl
Roma Tomato

Crimson Sweet Watermelon

(among others)

.... and a partridge in a pear tree.

Now.  Sad thing?  I don't remember if I *actually* planted all these things.  My two-liter greenhouse pots.... the writing on a few of them came off.  Oops.  I know for next year to label them with something that I can stick in the dirt.  Mah bad.  The only things I have not started/planted/gotten seeds for are things that 1) I have not bought yet and/or 2) things that are too early to start.  Don't look at me funny, I'm aware that some of the above plants are really too early to start.  I had the seeds and I wanted to play in the dirt, in a vain hope that Spring would come early.

The exciting thing??  THINGS ARE ALREADY SPROUTING!  My cherry tomatoes, a few Lavender, the Thyme (OMG) and a few other assorted things are already sprouting.  I'm going to have Thyme coming out of my ears, I need to whip up a drying rack fairly quickly.  Holy smokes.

So that's it for now.  I'll be updating the site a bit, so don't be too alarmed.
