Seed success

I have to show everyone my first ever seed germination success!! These are my sunflower seeds, the first to come up! I also have some borage and greek oregano breaking the surface too.

Now I'm off to prepare the garden beds. I started them yesterday, but I'll share more later.

So excited!!


  1. congrats Chris
    it is very exciting to see the first bit of green

  2. Well done. it's very satisfying isn't it. Your garden is looking great. :-)

  3. Congrats on the seeds germinating,
    No holding you back now!

  4. Thanks for the encouragement everyone. I was a little worried I'd either drown or dry them out completely. I used your idea of a plastic tub, Emily, and it worked a treat!

    It's very exciting to see a bit of green magic appearing for the first time. I knew you guys would understand!

  5. Congratulations! It's such a thrill to see the green shoots breaking through the ground.

    I've found your blog through 'Life in the Dome', it's very interesting to see how you're putting permaculture design into practice on this scale. I was wondering if you'd like to join the Veg About bloggers? It's just a list of people who are blogging about their vegies, so that we can see what's happening in each others' patches:

  6. Thanks for the invitation and comments bellgirl.

    I've had a quick look at the veg about site, and it's a great concept.

    When I get a spare moment I'll commit some more time to viewing and contributing.

    Much appreciated.
