Spring is in the air

though its not mild enough yet to get to work planting in the garden. So being somewhat impatient we spent an hour or so planting seeds in the propogators, setting the potatoes to chit and planting our windowsill herbs.

I do enjoy this but I don't really have green enough fingers. The basil plant in the green pot has already departed the earthly plane. But the other too are thriving. I have a 'spare' basil plant keeping warm in the propogator so hopefully that one will pull through.

I'm looking forward to spending a day later this week, weather permitting, constructing a raised bed for our veggies.

If you have any tips for raising basil successfully please let me know:)
