Seeds and My Backyard

Hectic Greenhouse Day

We had a busy, wonderful day today.

Frank and Riley worked on a real door for the greenhouse. They hung it a little while ago and then came in to watch the rest of the golf tournament.

Yesterday, the kids had helped me fill 200 peat pots with the "tobacco/vegetable soil" that we got from the supply store. Today, I spent a couple of hours putting seeds into the pots, labeling them (until I ran out of "popsicle" sticks!), and organizing stuff around the greenhouse. Nadia… Continue

Seed Starting!

I started cool weather crops (Broccoli, Cauliflower, Spinach and 3 types of Lettuce) on Monday, and I've already got inch tall seedlings! For whatever reason, I've yet to see any cauliflower? Perhaps the seeds are too aged (they've been in the fridge for two seasons...) Last night, I started Cherry Tomato, German Chamomile, Red Hot Poker, Foxglove, Country Romance Hollyhocks and Yellow Hollyhocks!

My dad called me this afternoon, apparently he found someone selling bulk seed on Ebay… Continue
