i know i’m a little bit late getting my seeds started, but we had some financial issues that kept me from making my order. i finally just got them in the mail at the end of last week, so i took some time today to get them into the soil!
i decided this that this year i would only plant heirloom seeds, though i will probably pick up some organic seedlings from the farmers market to fill out my garden.
this year’s seeds are a Belarusian Gypsy tomato, an Amish Striped tomato, an Indian Eggplant (from India) and some wild cherry tomatoes that were a free gift with my order. i posted their full names and descriptions earlier on in this blog if you’d like to learn more about them.
luckily, i had some clear plastic cupcake trays left over from my birthday party this weekend and they are *perfect* for starting seeds! all i did was fill up each pocket with potting soil and put a seed in each one. i watered them and left them in the sun. i figure by next week, i’ll definitely have some sproutage and once the threat of frost is over, i’ll put them into my small raised bed in the back yard.
