I still had a little soil

and a couple of old large violet pots, so I decided to try to grow freesias, as I love the scent. They're bulbs you put in 3 inches under the top of the soil, and you can fit 12 bulbs per square foot, so I think the spacing of these should be okay. I watered them with the fish waste water and put them in the actual windowsill. I may need to stake them, as they grow a foot or more tall. I got them at Kroger for $2.99 for a box of 10, much cheaper than getting a plant, and it's a variety of colours and scents. Here's hoping they do well. I bought some freesias (my first) earlier in the year that didn't have much scent and were kind of orange, and I have those bulbs resting to reset. I'll see how I do with these, though.
