Adventures in Broccoli
I haven’t posted lately about my gardening progress, but don’t let that throw you off. I’ve been working hard-inside!
Several weeks ago I started my broccoli, cabbage, parsley, and dill. I found some great Jiffy pots (size 3), and filled them with potting soil. I planted the seeds, watered well, and placed them in a tupperware container, with the lid on. The space I had available is in my basement, but it’s cold down there. So I left this lamp on to keep the temperature warm enough. It worked like a charm!
Once the seeds germinated, I took off the lid and placed them under the shop lights, which is on a timer. The Jiffy pots made it easy to see when they needed water.
Here is how it looks today. I took them outside while I worked in my garden so they can start hardening off. By the way, the bendy straw is what I used to label each plant.
