I felt like doing some gardening this morning. I picked up some dirt yesterday while out running errands so I could start some more seeds. :)
I put everything out on the kitchen counter and got right to it.
I had a cucumber plant that died. :( I went ahead and dumped it out into a bag.
I dug through the dirt checking to see if maybe...just maybe there was a survivor. I came across one little sprout. :) I carefully dug him out.
I planted him in a new pot with fresh dirt. Fingers crossed that he makes it. :)
I also dumped out my sunflowers that didn't grow. Last year, my sunflowers were the first to sprout so I knew something was wrong. Nothing was found in the dirt. I dumped the marigolds too. They sprouted pretty quickly last year as well. I dug through the dirt and found baby marigold sprouts. I replanted them as well. (I'm out of marigold seeds) Now let's hope that they will grow up. :)
I saved an egg carton this morning after making breakfast. I figured I could start some herbs or tomatoes in the carton. I used an egg crate last year and it worked pretty well for seedlings.
I cut off the top portion of the egg carton.
Here's the little egg crate ready for dirt.
I decided on 6 basil, 6 cherry tomatoes, and 6 parsley. I had cherry tom seeds that I saved recently from some store bought toms. I labeled the egg crate, filled with a little dirt, seeds and then some more dirt on top. :)
I made fries last night with some potatoes. I noticed some potatoes were sprouting so I washed them and dried them out overnight so I could plant them this morning.
I planted them each in their own pots.
Here's my pretty fabulous happy garden. :)
Here's Marigolds, Sunflowers and Potatoes.
My egg crate of seedlings, Beef Stake Tomatoes, Carrots, Broccoli and Eggplant. (I redid the eggplant too since I didn't have any sprouts).
In this window are my zucchinis, cucumbers and yellow squash.
This window has peas and green beans.
I also looked through my seeds. I'm going to my first seed swap this weekend with my BFF. I've never been to one so I can't wait to see what it's like. Hopefully, I will be able to swap some seeds and get some seeds I don't have. I really want to grow zucchini balls/squash balls, little zukes, little squash and some more marigolds.
