The other day, I went to the Dollar Tree and picked up some seed packets. Today, after I was done running errands, cleaning the house, and prepping meals for the week, I decided to do some planting.
I love the smell of fresh dirt. Not sure why though. I enjoyed playing in dirt when I was a kid. Am I weird? Or maybe every gardener loves dirt? :)
I started with the little greenhouses I got from the dollar tree. I put dirt in each one. Then I had to decide what seeds I wanted where. Decisions, decisions.....I know most people think long and hard about planting. I like to just dive right in and see what takes and what doesn't.
I picked out the seeds I wanted in the little greenhouse containers.
Curious to what seeds from certain veggies look like? Well I'm going to show you. :)
Greenbeans- How adorable are the seeds? I've never grown beans so I'm crossing my fingers.
Sugar Snap Peas- They look like little dried up peas.
Alaska Peas- I grew these last year with huge success.
Broccoli- Little black seeds.
The 4 green veggies above is all I planted in the little greenhouse containers. I might go back and get some more of these containers if they do help my seeds sprout. I like these containers so far.
See the seeds? I covered them with more dirt. Gave everyone a drink of water and then put the lid on them and set them in the window.
In some plastic cups I had, I poked some holes in the bottom for drainage and then added dirt and seeds.
Here's my sunny window with the seedlings.
With daily water, love and sunshine, I should see sprouts in about a week. So, maybe by next weekend we will see something? Now we just have to wait.
I have more seeds I want to plant but at least I've got some started. I also want to get my seed bank and garden book organized. More on that later. :)
