Seeds a-starting   2

Posted by neotoma on April 13, 2013 at 15:16"

I've started seeds for several kinds of pepper and one kind of tomatillo. Also, horehound and catmint in pots. My alpine strawberry seeds have finally germinated, and I have tiny wee seedling popping up in peat pots!

I originally wanted to do this yesterday but it rained in the morning so that kinda put a damper on things. So I did it all today instead! A bunch of the seeds I wintersowed in the milk jugs and soda bottles were getting crowded so it was time to move them to their bigger (permanent)... Read more

I HAVE SPROUTS! I'm way too excited about this for somebody my age. There are a *lot* of beets coming up. In fact, way more sprouts than seeds I planted?? Do "[beet](crop) seeds" actually each have more than one seed in them? Am I going to have to figure out how to thin them earlier than I... Read more

All the seeds I ordered this year have shown up. I've got seeds for 7 kinds of dye plants, though I won't be planting all of those. Some of them get too big for the space I'm allocated. I got Burpee's heirloom seeds for [summer squash](crop), purple-top white globe [turnip](crop)s, chioggia... Read more

I was meant to be working on paperwork type stuff today, but instead I went outside and did violence to a couple of ugly shrubs and dealt with the huge sprawling mess of our alleged "compost" pile. Before: ![Messy shrubs and a big spreading heap of garden... Read more

Best place to buy seeds?   8

Posted by fireandhemlock in Growing Stuff on April 08, 2013 at 09:39"

Where do you buy your seeds? I live in Melbourne and I'm wondering where the best places to find heirloom seeds are? Farmer's market? Local nursery?

I have been concerned about my pea planting because we had some unseasonably cold weather after I planted them. But I see a few sprouts from the Cascadia and Mammoth Melting [snap pea](crop)s. The Green Arrow shelling [peas](crop) have no sprouts so I replanted them today. [Turnip](crop)s... Read more

Trying Again   4

Posted by melannen on April 06, 2013 at 21:45"

I am a terrible gardener but every year around this time I get a bee in my bonnet anyway, so I have tried again! (I am also the world's laziest gardener, which doesn't help.) We've had late frosts (and snows!) this year, so since today finally felt like spring, I put in some dollar-store... Read more

Warm weather has arrived! Our spring has been unseasonably cool here, which was a marked change from last year when it was unseasonably warm! I looked at my gardening log from last year and I had happy tomato seedlings I'd wintersown in milkjugs already separated out and transplanted into red... Read more

I want to grow food!   3

Okay, I've had some failed gardening attempts in the past, but this year I'm going to try again, but in containers this time. (The community garden across the street from me has too little sun, so I'm going to put containers in the sunniest spots around my house, which is yardless.) If you... Read more
