Windowsill Gardening

Chives

Coriander

It’s amazing watching all my little pots grow! The next bit now is that the wild flowers actually need planting out into a garden or a big pot, which I didn’t realise when I bought them. I don’t have a garden, or a big pot! There is a strange little tree in a pot in the yard though so I may plant them into there and see if that works.

I finished my round cushion as well, and tomorrow I will explain to you what I have been doing wrong all along. You’ll laugh when I tell you.

(I feel a bit of a doofus!)

  1. Don’t feel a doofus! I’ve made a really silly mistake whilst crocheting my vintage stripe blanket. Yup, I have totally cocked up the easiest blanket ever.

    Could you transplant the meadow wild flowers into a verge you pass everyday on your way to work? That’s if the tree pot is too rooty to dig about in.

    Been meaning to ask, why is your blog called “little tin bird”?

    Have you seen Dottie Angel mentioned my blog on Friday? Between you and she I have readers. And followers! AND comments ;oD Oooooh I feel giddy! Thank you again xxx

    Was busy sorting out packets of seeds from last year that did not get planted. sow before end of 2011. so I still have time. My neighbour
    has insisted I have some potatoes so they are sitting in egg boxes on the living room window sill. Am intending to grow them in some
    containers as the garden is small and a haven for slugs. I also have a never ending battle with bramble. Every year I think I have got to the root of the problem only to find it has sprung up again.
    Changing the subject, what did you do with your crochet circle? A detailed explanation! One side of A4!!! xxx

  4. I bought two oval aluminium ‘drink’ tubs and have planted herbs in one and catmint and catnip in the other for my cat. They have handles so you can move them around to catch the sun. I think I will take a photo of my cat in hers loving up to the catnip and post it on my blog.
    I think we all feel a bit of a doofus when we do something wrong that is so easy :)

    OH, I am so happpy for you that your plants are growing well!!! I
    just started a garden on my back screened-in porch as I live in a condominium and don’t have a yard. It’s inspiring to see your plants growing in their little pots. Good for you!

    Cheers!

  6. You are going to love your chives! I’ve had a pot of them for 12 years or more and they keep coming back as vigorous as can be and I leave them outside all year. Snipped chives is a great addition to omelets and potato dishes. :-)

  7. Argh that’s so exciting seeing them grow! I’d be doing dances if it was me. Little kitchen growing things dances – they’re the best ones.

    Tell us about the stupid mistake, they’re the best ones. And then maybe I will somehow magically work out whatever it is that I’m doing wrong when I try and ripple!

  8. Your little plants are growing so quickly! Reminds me that I should plant some of my seeds too, ahh I love it when you see that first sign of growth :o) xx

  9. Hello sweetie,
    You really are a bad influence, I should be working on some sketches but instead I had to come over and meet you especially since you live only a few hills away! And thats where the trouble began, you see I’ve read one post and then the previous one and then another and before I knew it half an hour has passed! (oh by the way, you looked lovely in your wedding dress hun!)
    Really must get on now. Lovely to meet you.
    love fi x

    Ahhh, love the scents of herbs!
    Growing nicely!
    Can’t wait to hear how you were doing the pillow. Reminds me of how stumped I was learning the Reverse Single crochet stitch!
