If you haven’t started already, now is the perfect time to be preparing for your spring garden.
Here’s a list of some of the things we’re planting in our garden…
- herbs (mixed variety)
- lettuce (mixed variety)
- string beans
- pinto beans
- tomatoes (mixed variety)
- peppers (mixed variety)
- squash (mixed variety)
- cucumbers (mixed variety)
In my opinion, the best way to plant seeds is to start them indoors. A great way to do that is to use a Jiffy Greenhouse. You simply get the kit, water the Peat Pellets, plant the seeds, and watch them grow! Then, once spring arrives you’ll have a head start on your garden.
If you don’t want to buy anything, there are many ways to make homemade pots for your seeds. Gardenbetty.com has some great articles showing how to create earth friendly, biodegradable seed pots from things you might otherwise throw away. Make sure to check out her articles on making newspaper pots and eggshell pots. I’ve tried them and they work great. In fact, my corn is loving their eggshell starters.
If you are new to planting, you might want to check out another one of our posts on seeds before you purchase any.
