This year I am starting both flowers and veggies inside from seed. I know the winter months can be wearing for some and others love this season of rebirth and renewal. I personally love these quieter winter months of reading, sitting by our fire, and seed starting.
I hope you'll join me on this journey of growing your own plant babies for your garden. I'm including a video of how I like to start my seeds. And in the next post I'll talk about carrying for your seedlings.
When starting seeds, you'll need:
Seeds - Water - Jiffy Seed Starting Mix
Pencil - Popsicle Sticks or Card Stock - Labeling pen
Seed Starting Trays - Leftover Plastic trays from Nurseries - Strawberry Containers from grocery - Milk Jugs all work great.
I use a combination of the above items. In my video today I have an aluminum tray & the toilet paper/paper towel holders to separate the starts.
Here's my list of inside seed starts for the year:
Black Beauty Zuchini
My list of direct sow plants for our cool/warm seasons:
Boston Bib Lettuce
My list of direct sow plants for hot season:
