I'm a couple weeks delayed this year in starting my garden. I ordered my seeds in plenty of time, and have had them here for over a month. I am just behind.
I planned out my garden layout over the weekend. I changed up my vegetables a little bit from last year - deleted some crops, added new.
Out with the zucchini, pumpkins and peppers; in with the sugar snap peas, edamame, corn, watermelon and brussel sprouts.
This morning, I bounced out of bed to get started. Didn't even bother to get out of my jammies, just needed to get it done. Workng on the kitchen floor, it got to work. And did I mention that we woke up to light snow on the ground and it is still flurrying? :(
I sowed the seeds to some plants that I want to have an early start. Green beans, cucumbers, edamame and sugar snaps. I decided to use the organic pots that can be planted directly in the ground when ready, and I labeled each one.
Added some dressed up dirt - potting soil and bone meal, to each pot. Plopped in 3 seeds per pot and covered with a little more dirt. Squirted each plant heavily with water, and now I wait.
Their home for the next few weeks in a sunny spot in the kitchen.
I can't wait to plant them outside with the rest of the crop. Tomato plants will arrive the end of April, and I will plant the brussel sprouts and watermelon directly into the ground.
Hurry up warm weather. Please get here soon! I'm so ready to say goodbye to the frost!
