They call me Mellow Yellow (quite rightly)

Hey Dudes and Dames. Bagged myself another Etsy Treasury. A woo-hoo.
Treasury is an interesting feature on the Etsy website which allows you to pick items and arrange them similar to what you see on Etsy's front page. Some Treasuries are picked for the front page too - if the tone is to the admin's liking. I think of it as a sort of mood board. Well here's mine anyhow:

With spring well and truly sprung I decided it was high time for some green fingered gallivanting.
A small balcony and a window-sill to work with - a challenge but not impossible, I think you'll agree.
About 2 weeks ago we went to Homebase and got ourselves some potting compost, seeds and pots. Radish, Rocket, Lambs Lettuce and Parsley have been planted so far.
The radish were sprouted in about 3 or 4 days! It was so gratifying to see them popping up. Look at them now 2 weeks in they are flying up. They'll be ready to pick in another 3-4 weeks apparently. Yummers!
What do you think of my plant markers? I just drew the letter backwards roughly on to a pieces of card and cut away. Then I just free handed the little radish beside it. Twas shocking easy.
Tried a different style R for the Rocket but don't like the effect as much.

I'd love to give these guys a go sometime. They're just darling, don't you think?
