This week I started seeds for my garden; it's the first year I've ever started from seeds. I have planted small gardens in the past that haven't gone so well. This year, I decided to go for it. I may have gone a little crazy with the seed catalog....
Dmitri loved helping plant the seeds.
He got especially excited when he saw the watermelon seeds.
I planted the seeds in these little cups made from newspaper, with a handy paper Potmaker that I borrowed from friends. I saw the idea of starting seeds in a Rubbermaid container from Pinterest (naturally). It's like a $7 greenhouse that's lightweight and moveable- perfect just in case our Georgia
summer spring surprises us with a cool snap. (It's been in the upper 80's this week!)
tomatoes (Beefsteak, Pink German, Homestead, Moneymaker, and A Grappoli D'Inverno)
peppers (Quadrato D'asti Rosso Pepper)
watermelon (Moon and Stars)
melons (Kansas and Charentais)
yellow crookneck squash (Early Golden Summer)
lettuce (Henderson's Black Seed, Lollo Rossa, Red Romaine and Merveille des Quatre Saisons)
cucumber (Solly Beiler and Suyo Long)
eggplant (Aswad and Black Beauty)
broccoli (Waltham 29)
and a few flowers too!
Send happy growing thoughts my way. I need them.
What are you planting this year? Anything new or exciting? Any new gardeners like me?
