cherokeealex's blog: November 2013

<p>Well, I promptly forgot about this so I'll try again. It has gotten really cold here in Iowa, so most of my outdoor gardening is done. My chives and parsley are still going strong, so I can still harvest those. My sempervivum, jovibarba, and variegated mugwort are all looking nice outdoors. Should I cover them with mulch before it snows? I know they're all hardy but I'm not sure if I need to do anything else to them. </p>
<p>My indoor plants are still going strong. I sowed some curly Epiphyllum seeds a couple of weeks ago. They haven't germinated yet but supposedly they can take quite a while so I'm not worried yet. I got a Vicks plant from one of my friends. It smells so good! I'm hoping to have cuttings that I'll be able to send to other people. It's a cute plant too, and soft and fuzzy. </p>
<p>I've already bought most of my seeds for next spring. I have two kinds of corn to try for the first time. It will be weird growing them in pots but I'll give it a shot. I also have two kinds of green beans (well one of them is purple), two kinds of tomatoes, two kinds of basil, marjoram, and dwarf sunflowers. I might try lavender again too. My deck will definitely be crowded, so I might have to put more of my plants out front. Maybe I'll put all my flowers there. </p>
<p>I do have room for at least one more grow light indoors, so I might get another and make some room. The problem is that I can't really put tall plants underneath a shop light on a shelf, so it works best for small plants like cacti and succulents. </p>
