According to my biodynamic calendar, today (March 22) is a leaf day, and I planted the following, mostly herbs. I found this neat self-watering container made from 2 liter soda bottles, so I made a dive into the recycling center's bins for bottles. They are great, but you MUST use a soil-less mix that will wick water up to the top. Do download the PDF from the blog post below... it's very specific on how to make them. I now have about 20 on my shelf just below the windowsill.
Today's seed planting:
green shisho (perilla)
Mrs. Burn's lemon basil
sweet basil (old seeds, not expecting anything much to germinate)
Italian basil a friend sent 3-4 years ago, (old seeds, not expecting anything much to germinate)
lemon bee balm
redbud (flowering tree)
I intended to start some chervil today too, but the package says to plant the seeds in the ground as it doesn't like to be moved.
