The main light is now stocked with brand newly sown seeds. Here's what I started today.
- Food: Rapini Broccoli, Ramanesco Broccoli, White Beauty Tomato, Moneymaker Tomato, Luffa Gourd
- Non-food: Lady's Mantle, Blue Fescue, Miscanthus, "Terrific Trailers" seed mix made for hanging baskets
Himilayan Experiment Update: Planted seeds 3 different ways. Coconut fiber pellets x 3, Peat pots x 4, Winter Sown plastic water jug. I have a few seeds left which I'll probably WS later unless the indoor ones do particularly well.
Growing Challenge update: The bush beans and yellow zucchini have now been transplanted to the compost tumbler. I noticed that they were growing these crazy scary roots out the bottom of the coconut fiber pellets. RIP beans and zucchini! I'll try again later.
I've just got to say something about Baker Creek Heirloom seed company. I LOVE THESE PEOPLE! I ordered Rapini, white tomato, rocky top lettuce mix and some aster seed and they sent all that PLUS Ramanesco Italian Broccoli, Moneymaker Tomato, Cucumber Lemon. Was that nice of them? Plus, their seed packs contain plenty-o-seeds. If you have not checked them out, you should! I know everybody and their brother mentions these people in their blog but they are totally worth it. The one complaint I have is that they don't tell you the days to maturity or give planting instructions on some of the seeds. That can be a problem for a first time seed starter like me. But their free seeds make up for that. Who gives away free Heirloom seeds??
