Sprouting a Garden
It's that time again!
Liam helped me plant the first half of our garden last night. Ian picked up a couple of the jiffy greenhouse peat moss kits. We sorted through all the seeds we've bought in previous years and decided what we would try this year. We've stored them in the garage, so I am not sure if they'll germinate. That is why we start this process in March right?
Last night we planted:
A few days ago we ordered all the rare seeds we want to try this year. It's fun picking them out as a family. We are going to have some funny looking squash, melon and tomatoes this year. We love experimenting with rare breeds - Ian especially.
Ian is expanding our garden area this year to accommodate everything. I think we'll wait to do the cucumbers and pumpkins outside when the frost is clear... putting those behind everything else will only benefit us. They seem to crawl and take over EVERYTHING!
Anyway, I love this time of year! Spring is so near!
UPDATE: We received our hybrid seeds in the mail and got those planted exactly a week later. Tigger Tomatoes, golden tomatoes, Moon and Stars Melon, cucumbers, a variety of squash, and more.
