Jodi’s Garden, First Week of March
In the garden:
I got ambitious with prepping my gardens this week. I supplemented my compost-filled beds with some peat moss and vermiculite and filled in the remaining space with fresh compost. Pulled some weeds out of the garden and my surrounding paver stones.
Planning to start some garlic outdoors this week. Timing on garlic is weird as it does better planted in the fall. But I’m experimenting with it this year by trying it in the early early spring. We’ll see what happens!
New Indoor Seedlings:
Started some parsley and three varieties of tomatoes in jiffy pots with vermiculite. I am quite enjoying this new method of starting seeds indoors.
Current Indoor Seedlings:
Red onions and yellow onions are all starting to sprout quite nicely in my jiffy pellets. A teeny celery plant is just barely poking it’s head above the dirt. Still waiting on peppers and cabbage to make an appearance. My broccoli exploded in the vermiculite jiffy pots so I repotted them into jiffy pots filled with potting soil. Here is a picture of the repotting process including a slight mishap I had (dumped the whole thing on my kitchen floor … sad)
