seed starting! Woohoo! Two friends and I started our seeds on January 15th, about 8 weeks before our final frost date. In our Jiffy seed starting greenhouses we have tomatoes, peppers, basil, and broccoli, most all of which we purchased from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds. We prefer the Jiffy peat pots over other brands because of the netting they have over the dirt, making it much easier to move around the pots after they have expanded. (You’ll want to buy these at Home Depot or Walmart, though, not online. Much cheaper.)
Lo and behold, they started growing. This picture is two months old; the greens are huge now. Something keeps poking around in the bag (Chase, I’m talking to you!), so I keep re-burying the potatoes, but last time I found some tiny, round red potatoes. As in, potatoes are actually growing! Root vegetables can be hard because you can’t see what is going on under the ground, so I’m very excited to know that there are tiny potatoes growing in my bag.
What are you growing this year?
