  • growing from seeds

    This year, I'm going to attempt to plant seeds and raise my herbs and veggies "from scratch".
    I'm excited to try it.

    I've been reading about what to do, and I have just a couple months left to plan and plant...

  • Fun!!! I tried that one year an built a cold frame. I wasn't super successful but I later found out it was due to poor soil nutrients. Lesson learned.

      • Cold frames are good for getting a jump on the growing season. Mix in peat moss, a little steer manure and a little fertilizer. Throw an old blanket or bedspread over them when it freezes overnight and take it off during the day.

        Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot?

        • As a tip: When the seedlings have underdeveloped roots, the soil should remain moist only and not wet.

            • I'd like to know how it is going, too. I really want to grow some veggies and herbs but I have such a brown thumb it never works out.

              • I don't grow anything myself, but I own serveral house plants. I LOVE plants & flowers. They're so beautiful and cleanse the air. I am very much into nature. That is why I love spring and summer so much.

                • I have seedlings and I have been as giddy as a child over the little babies. Lol

                  This spring has been difficult for getting anything going but maybe in the next 2 wks I can get them put out.

                  Anyone else?
