¡Aquí están!

El día 12 de marzo, la enana y yo plantamos orégano, albahaca, tomillo y romero (resulta que el perejil y la cebolleta no pueden plantarse en maceta, según el paquete, ¡qué fallo!)
Hace unos días la albahaca comenzó a despuntar:
Hace dos días divisé el orégano:
Tomillo y romero no se manifiestan. Observo, incluso les hablo, pero se están haciendo de rogar. Estoy llena de emoción y miedo (también mocos, pero eso es otra historia). Me emociona ver cómo evolucionan las semillas. Tengo miedo de matarlas, de hacer algo mal, después de mi conocida historia con los geranios...

Seguiremos informando.

Yes, well, we all know the "Tragedy of the Lost Geraniums". It's been translated into several languages in epic poem form and is required reading at many schools.

But this crop is looking good. :-)

I don't understand the problem with the parsley and chives, though. They're fine growing in containers, or at least their American cousins are. Parsely just needs to be well-watered and well-drained, and chives take a long time to get started, but once they're established, they're fine. You might want to go ahead and plant them anyway....

So that you know, not all geraniums died ("only"6 of them)...

I'll go ahead and plant parsley and chives, then. I guess with the masters do around the corner,so to speak, your backyard isn't in its best moment. Which reminds me, say hi to my friends the squirrels for me.

Ah, well, ok. It wasn't a total geranium massacre then. That's good.

No, my backyard resembles the unexcavated Mayan ruins I saw in Mexico -- some unidentifiable lumps covered with dead leaves and who-knows-what. Mostly who-know-what. But it's ok -- it's a little early to be planting here anyway since last night was about 5º below freezing. The squirrels went to a hotel for the weekend....

My poor friends the squirrels! No wonder, if you don't feed them anymore with fresh plants and flowers...
