Outside my garden looks like this:
Inside my garden looks like this:
I love that my children keep referring to the lights as stairs.
And since I can't spend anytime outside I am slowly but surely getting everything ready inside. These are the domes I purchased at Anderson's Seed and Garden a few years ago. They are still in fantastic shape.
If you happen to Like their facebook page just let them know that I sent you in a comment. They are giving away a something free on Fridays (to anywhere in the USA).
The peat pots are actually Jiffy Brand but the seed trays are from Andersons
I labelled all of the popsicle sticks and placed the corresponding seed packets with them.
Next year I think I will move them into the spare bedroom. This year they are out where I can see even if it is the basement. How many of you have basements?
This is the Michihili Cabbage - a type of chinese cabbage. I purchased the seeds at Andersons but not in the bulk seed section. I love stir fry and kimchee. We ate a lot of it as kids because my Dad was stationed in Korea right before I was born.
This is the Dutch Ball Head cabbage. I need to thin soon.
All of my Pink Brandywine and Red Beefsteak tomatoes are doing well. I thinned them a lot. I'm just glad to see the seeds I gathered actually sprouted. Lovely heirlooms. I love them!
And my Utah Celery:
This will be interesting but I think that because I have a drip irrigation system on a timer that they will do well. You can't ever let it dry out and you can't overwater (black heart).
I'm not sure how the blanching part will go. But I love trying new things in the garden.
And I finally got a few sprouts from my Correnta Spinach.
I love this Big Daddy Onions. They are doing well - including those in storage.
And the green onions from seed I collected are in serious need of being thinned. I just dumped the bag in the pot. Next time I will put a 1/3 of the seeds in a pot this size.
