Seed Starting, and a Rescue Mission
Once March arrives, no matter the weather, I drag out the seed-starting trays and get to work. It's one of those things I spend all winter planning, and then get way too excited when it's finally time... All my planning inevitably goes out the window, and I plant way too much of everything. This year is already shaping up to be dangerous... and I'm trying to figure out how to plant more and more stuff in my little suburban oasis. Last fall I worked hard at organizing and saving my seeds. I purchased some super cool aluminum watch-makers cases from Lee Valley (the greatest gardening store on Earth), and I love how organized they kept everything!
I had an unexpected endeavour along with the usual seed starting... the garlic in my fridge had started growing. It was starting to look like an actual plant in there, all sad and clinging to life... so being the crazy plant lady, I rescued them. So now we have 24 sprouted garlic plants growing in the greenhouse (I use that term loosely).
I have also started some cauliflower at Lauren's request. I'm going to have to figure out how to keep the bugs away from it this year (organically of course). In addition, I have Inca Merigolds (they're massive), and at least 12 different kinds of tomatoes started. It's going to be an exciting spring, so get planting!
