Spring Planting – Day 1


Today, we started the seeds that will become our spring garden! This year we’ve chosen to plant:

Roma tomatoes


Red onions


Pickling cucumbers

Collard greens

Italian squash

Green onions

Autumn king carrots


We bought some non-GMO seeds from SeedsNow.com ($0.99 per packet of seeds) and got a 72 section seed starter (about $7) from our local hardware store. We filled each spot with a mixture of starer potting soil and perlite.


Then we poured a little water into each spot.


Then we put two seeds into each spot. We covered each hole with a little more starter soil ….

Happy gardening!
