|Old tofu containers make nice seed starting trays. I use a soldering iron |
to burn a few holes in the bottom for drainage,
Several of the cooler containers are now cleaned, refilled, and ready for transplants. First crops in will be carrots.
Seeds that I've started so far include.....
Carrots (ya ya, oxheart, amarillo)
Leeks (King Richard)
Bok choy (extra dwarf)
Kale (thunderhead, blue curled vates)
Celery (Chinese pink)
Tomato (black icicle, orange icicle, black beauty)
Squash (golden glory)
Cucumber (picolino, socrates, itachi)
Winged bean (urizun Japanese)
Celeriac (giant Prague)
Chard (verde de taglio)
Pepper, sweet (mini bell mix, pretty-n-sweet)
Assorted flower(cosmos, marigolds, vinca, impatiens)
Tomorrow I'll get another group a seeds sown and I'll let you know what I've chosen to start. Some of the things I'm starting will be for hydroponics. Others will be in slug-free containers. Yet others will go into the main garden area.
