Starting seeds

I already posted about our garden prep.  Starting seeds for the new garden.


We have been using these mini greenhouse seed starters from Ferry Morse for about seven years.  It is a real improvement from not having the green house cover.  They are reusable and effective.  We really need to use grow lights too and we are planning on that for next year and beyond. Three trays of seedlings should fill our giant garden nicely.  We will still buy some seedlings also.  We also have tons of seeds to sow direct for beans, peas and carrots.


The garden is going to be quite a distance from the house.  I don’t want to run all the way out there every time I want a sprig of herb, a green onion or some lettuce.  I bought these deck rail planters to have a mini herb garden and some greens close by.  I also think that edibles can be attractive and I mixed them with some edible flowers like nasturtium, marigolds and violas.

I will post progress as they start to sprout and hopefully flourish.
