does the idea of starting plants from seed make you nervous? that was me last year. yep, i had never before (outside of elementary school science projects) planted a seed that actually grew into something and thrived. guess what? it turned out okay. more than okay actually. pretty great to be honest. so this being round two, i was so over that fear. ha! not quite, but i do much better with some hands on experience and this year is more fun, less nerves. at the end of march, we had our first indoor seed sowing session.
here's a chubby little gia hand helping with the zinnia seeds. luca and i worked on veggies, while the princessa was all about the flowers. we put lots of extra seeds in each pot because all of them were from last year and i wasn't sure of their germination rates.
so what did we start from seed this year?
- tomatoes (roma, supersweet 100, brandywine, chocolate cherry)
- peppers (california bell, anaheim, poblano, banana, serrano, jalapeno)
- zinnias (button and giant)
- marigold (mix)
and we also set up a nifty new shelving unit in the basement with hanging lights and such. pretty cool if i do say. i'll try to get some photos of it later today.
time to boogie. . .see you soon with more garden goodies!
