I loved having a garden last year. Of course, I chose the driest year in recorded history to start my new obsession, but we made it work.
This year I have decided to start the garden from seeds (mainly). Last week, before the deluge, I planted four rows of carrots. I figure, we love carrots so . . . why not?
Today I started tomato, basil and pepper seeds inside. Here's the scoop:
I got these little "kits" from Wal-Mart for $1.00 each. Yes, I know I probably should have gone to The Natural Gardener like I did last year, but we are on a serious Budget (capitalized because it has taken on a life of its own) so I need to cut corners whenever and where ever I can.
I used the pots provided, but they had significant drainage holes. I didn't want to make a huge mess so . . . .
Then added water to the little pellet they provided. That was fun!
Put the seeds in and covered them up.
Then I misted the top of the soil to make sure the seeds had enough moisture to start germinating.
I labeled them all and now they'll go in a window to sprout!
I'll let you know how they turn out.
I just went out to check my carrot seeds. I hadn't expected any sprouts yet, but I also didn't expect what I found . . .
