A few weeks ago, it was time to get the garden in order by selecting our seeds for the season. Instead of buying our plants at our local nursery, my husband and I chose to grow them from seed. We picked a variety of seeds that we knew the family would like, and even some new things we'd like to try this year.
Save your egg cartons, and your plastic berry
containers!! Fill them up
with dirt and follow the directions
on each seed packet!
I used Organic Plus Patio Plus Premium
Outdoor Potting Mix.
Once the seeds were planted, water them and
cover them with plastic wrap. This helps them
to germinate. Don't pack down the
dirt. Once the seeds germinate, you can
remove the plastic wrap and keep watering.
(Sorry, I have no pictures for this step!)
I grew them inside next to a window!
Once they grow (like the pictures above),
transplant them into bigger pots (red plastic cups).
The cups are deeper and can help the roots of the
plants grow. We would have planted them
directly to the ground, but the weather in
the morning is still to cold and the sun is way to hot
for these tender plants.
My husband drilled holes on the bottom of these
red plastic cups. Don't forget to water once
you've moved your plants to their new home!!!
It's not to late in the season to start preparing your seeds.
This is a great project for the kids to take part in.
What will you grow?
