Peetee, the incredible nursery dog warming in the sun this morning on a soft bed of mulch.
Great gardens start with great seeds. Not the same-ol, same-ol stuff (we have that too)
You gotta start some seeds inside in seed starting soil that contains no “dirt.” This company is the marijuana grower’s favorite potting soil. I figure if it’s good enough for them, it’s good enough for us.
These are great little seed starter thingys also. Plop the tiny seeds into the tiny well then place in a tray of good old H2O then watch em grow. Plant the entire thingy after the frost date.
Coconut fiber cells for starting seeds- an efficient way to start seeds for a space saving way to grow exactly what you want in the quantity needed. Plant the entire cell coconut fiber pot, plant and all!
Then refill the plastic tray (use it over and over) with the coconut pot refills. Efficient space savers!
All this talk of starting up the garden either bores my dog Peetee or tired her out. She never tells me which.
...pretty soon you will not need to buy this chemical-laden stuff, it’ll be coming out of your garden!!!
We just ordered a bunch of veggie seeds from a very unique grower! Lots of really interesting varieties of flowers and veggies I didn’t know existed
I was never a fan of seeds till last year when I sprinkled them into trenches for the first time. Radishes, carrots, arugula. Best arugula over ever had. I would sometimes just sit in front of the row to pick/eat/pick/eat/pick/eat. I’m pretty sure that no arugula ever actually made it into the kitchen. That experience sold me on the seeding method.... not to mention how cheap in comparison seeds are. The best thing though, is the varieties we can get now from seeds- stuff I’ve never seen before! Check out the white-tipped radishes we have- so cool.
