Seeds Started!

written by Yvonne

(This was from two weeks ago)

We have a big house re-decorating project in our very near future so we had to get some seeds going if we were to get a jump on Spring.  Tom laid out some left over roofing tiles to block the grass from growing into the green house.

The previous greenhouse cover was torn in several places and one of the zippers broke so we bought a new one.

It was a beautiful day so Tom set up a make-shift workbench outside.

He filled up the pots with dirt and started planting seeds. He got carried away and ended up planting two different types of seeds in each of the pots in Tray 4.

Who knows, maybe we'll get a parsley-cabbage hybrid of some kind. It will be interesting to see what comes up in these pots since each one has two different seeds.

One bag of dirt was chock full of ants so he dumped it into the herb bed.

All seeds got planted and set in the greenhouse.  We started cabbage, 4 different kinds of peppers, parsley, broccoli, onions. We were also supposed to get lettuce, peas, collards, kale, Swiss chard and spinach planted directly in the beds but that didn't happen. It'll have to wait a few weeks before we can get to it.

Honey and Olive enjoyed their day outside.
