Sea of Seeds...

Category: Numb's Garden Life | Posted: Fri Apr 10, 2009 3:16 pm

I think i got a little excited this year and anxious to get some seeds germed...

so back in march when the weather wasnt the best i started germing the seeds not realizing that the lil baby plants would need some good sun and comfy weather.

heres what i had going..

i only have bought the regular seeds from the store so i dont have any fancy varieties that i see in some of the posts here on Garden Stew.

So i kept on germin my seeds and went a lil overboard with 3 or 4 of each variety not realizing how much work it would be to keep them all up and how many i actually needed. I dont have a lot of room to garden, well actually i have room but only certain parts of the garden get the right amount of light to do anything.

I use jiffy pellets for starting the seeds but i learned that the lil jiffy pots can absorb some of the moisture out of the soil which isnt good if you dont pay attention to them in the sun and i lost a bunch of seedlings this way. This is also when i realized i didnt need 3-4 of each type of plant i was growing so im down to 1, maybe 2 of each variety now.
I want to grow a lot of stuff so i cant afford to grow bunches of the same kind if i dont have room.

my most abundant grow is to do with tomatoes which i dont even eat but i love the plant and the varieties that it has. I love ketchup and have made a promise to bite into each type of tomato i grow this season to see if i can develop a taste.
