Prepare yourself for a lot of photos of dirt and small plants! In an effort to keep my gardening costs down a little bit this year, I decided I would give growing seeds another shot. This is something I've tried in the past with mixed results. But this year, I am all in.
|I chose a mix of flowers and veggies seeds, got a little seed starting kit, and some soil.|
|Alyssum, Zinnia, Columbine, Lupine, Sweet Pea, Poppy, Zucchini, Tomato, Beans|
|I covered them with the plastic lid and placed them in my guest room with the curtain open. The plastic lid was key. It created a little greenhouse effect.... the good kind.|
|In just a few days there were little seedlings sprouting from almost every spot!|
I had no luck with the Columbine. Maybe they were dud seeds?
|These guys were magical to watch burst out of the soil.|
|Their first day outside!|
|I had so much fun with the first batch, I decided to start another batch with the leftover seeds and some found objects! It worked too!|
|Now I just need to figure out where I want these guys to go! They are ready for the ground.|
