SeedGROW Project 2011!

Well the time has come for another fantastic garden bloggers SeedGROW project, courtesy of Renee's Garden! This year's project promises to be three times the fun with three varieties of seed: basil 'Italian Cameo', lettuce 'Garden Babies', and marigold 'Summer Splash'. In this first planter I planted the marigold on May 9th, along with beans, peas, and a nasturtium...
 ....and the marigolds are coming along nicely!
 Here I've planted the basil (also on the 9th), and there's LOTS of good germination going on.....
 ...almost ready to do some thinning as a matter of fact (thanks in part to the grill grate protection from digging chipmunks).
There are 3 other areas with project seeds planted (including the lettuce), but with less progress. NOT the fault of Renee's seeds, however: my weather has been exceptionally cool this year. As a matter of fact, the low was 26 degrees on May 27th!! Frankly I'm happy that any of these plants are alive at all, they're rock stars as far as I'm concerned! :)
