Planting season is about to commence!
The vegetable garden is tilled,
the early seeds were planted -
sugar peas, beets and the
strawberry plants are looking good!
But there is still much to do!
|seedlings - peppers, tomatoes, zucchini 2014|
We did start some seeds indoor
these last few weeks.
The tomatoes (Beefsteak & Big Red cherry)
were the first to sprout their little leaves
with the zucchini/squash soon after.
The peppers took their full
two weeks to appear.
|Seed Starter Kit 2014 - seedlings|
These seedlings are from the
Dollar Store 25¢ seed packets
I bought mid-March, along with
this plastic 72 cell seed starter
My daughter & I filled the cells
with regular potting soil, placed
a toothpick into one of the cells
for reference then sprinkled our
seeds being careful to record
placement of each in our
We watered the soil until it was
saturated, put on the clear plastic
lid and placed the mini-greenhouse
on top of the refrigerator.
When more than half of the seedlings
started to appear, we placed the
greenhouse on a table with indirect
sunlight. A few days later, we
removed the plastic lid and set
the plants under a southern facing
skylight and that's where they are
now, growing up & growing strong.
Our last frost date for our region
is a few days away, so we'll see
how well the plants are doing before
transitioning them outside.
Do you grow your own veggies?
