I should have started my seeds indoors about 2 weeks ago, but I am glad to at least have this jump start. I found another square foot gardener who has an awesome blog with lots of great information and watched her video on starting seeds indoors. I had a huge AHA moment watching her video. All the problems I’ve had in the past were addressed so simply and easily (mold, not enough water, heat, transplanting issues, etc) I am now copying her method as best I can. I HIGHLY recommend that you check her ideas out: Starting Seeds Indoors by My Square Foot Garden
Now I could NOT locate nice little pots for my plants like she did. I was also feeling a little weird searching for “pot” online. HAHA I even received some Swagbucks for the searching too! HAHAHA At any rate, I went a different route and found these little beauties!
My Hubbie was great and drilled some holes in the bottom of them and I ended up with a different bin because they were on clearance, but I can fit 15 total dishes in each bin. I am using 2 bins so I have started 30 peppers and tomatoes inside! (I winter sew my cukes, squash, etc.)
So then I started in with gathering my supplies, mixing dirt and water, putting the dirt into the dishes and planting my little seeds! I am so excited!!! I can’t wait to see how many little green seedlings pop up in the next few week! I keep checking them everyday, like something should happen now? HAHAHA A watched pot never boils! Sigh…
How are you doing on your gardening plans? I’d love to see what you have started in seedlings for this year!
PS- I linked up LATE, but I linked up to An Oregon Cottage's garden meme! So excited to check out the other blogs now. Head over there to check out some other garden related posts.
