This is the time of year to start checking out the new seeds available for the summer garden. With so many new varieties available this year for home gardeners these days one has to be organized. About two weeks ago the local home stores and nurseries started putting out the seed displays. One of the top seed providers in my area is by Burpee. Have you seen the new Heirloom collection by Burpee? I was impressed just because they had my Brandywine Tomatoes I was searching for online. It was a great find to see them at the local Lowes Home and Garden Store on display.
Waiting for me to get motivated to start my planting project is my bag of organic soil and some peat pods containers. The peat pods are labeled as the most biodegradable way to plant. When it's time to transplant, set pot and all into the soil. Made of peat and wood fiber with soluble fertilizer added. The perfect choice for all your seedlings. I had great progress with these pods last year with the few plants I started on my own.
My list of herbs / veggies to begin indoors this weekend are list below:
Sweet Basil Organic
Greek Miniature, Organic
Parsley, Plain (Single Italian)
Mesclun Early Mix
This is the miniature rose blooming in my kitchen window this week. I want to close out tonight with this warm photo. Using this cold weather months to get organized for a productive and successful garden year.
