Starting the herbs...

Today I started planting a few herbs -- two types of basil (Large Leaf Italian and Red Velvet Leaf), parsley, catnip, lemon balm and fennel.  They've gone into the greenhouse on the heated mat.

and...I'm doing a germination test on all of the sunflower seeds that I've saved since 2013...not sure they will come up or not.  I save seeds too long some time.  I'll keep these wet for a few days to see if any germinate, and if so they'll go into pots in the greenhouse.
There are four types in here, stacked on top of each other - Hopi Black Oil, Teddy Bear, Italian White, and Red Velvet Queen.

I love having sunflowers for the birds!
