Garden Notes: Starting Seeds
March 28, 2014
Last weekend, we pulled one of our shelving units from the basement, gave it a good dusting off, and set it up in our south facing window in the dining room so we could start some seeds. We also bought a full-spectrum light from the store, but I'm hoping the seedlings get enough direct sunlight here that we won't need to set it up.
Among those planted, we have:
-Flowers: marigolds, nasturtiums, and sunflowers
-Herbs: sage and chives (we also have lavender and mint herb starts)
-Peppers: cayenne, jalapeno, and poblano
-Tomatoes sent to me from Katrina (SO excited for these!)
-Succulents. My three surviving succulent plants are going crazy, so I'm attempting to propagate.
So far, the arugula, peas, and sunflower seeds have already sprouted. Again, I have to say: It never fails to surprise me when something I plant actually grows. Nature is magic.
