It’s almost that time of year where I plan the garden, and while I normally buy seedlings, this year I thought it would be fun to try starting a garden from seed. It’s not something I’ve been really successful at before, so I thought I’d give it another try. I had little helpers this time and they thought it was so cool. Søren only spilled the seeds everywhere once, so I’d say it was a success. We’re playing the waiting game now, I hope at least some of the plants make it. If they all manage to grow, I’ll give some away to the community. Gotta love craigslist!
This year I’m planting: carrots, cucumber, sugar peas, radishes, peppers, zucchini, tomato, strawberries (sadly only one of my plants made it from last year), sunflowers, and chives. The sunflowers and chives will be in their own pots away from the regular garden beds. I sowed the seeds (except the radishes and carrots) into egg containers and seed cartons (I didn’t have enough egg crates) and covered them with some leftover plastic from an Ikea purchase. I really hope they make it because the boys will be excited to see the garden grow. One of my favorite parts about growing our own garden is letting the boys snack from it, just like I did as a kid.
Do you grow a garden or any other plants?
