Starting Seeds and Planting Onions
I’m very proud of myself for actually getting my seeds started on time! Last year I was so busy, I ended up just buying all my plants. But it was EXPENSIVE!
So here’s my setup. All the plants in round pots are for my veggie garden, and the square ones are flowers for the front garden bed. I’m starting kale, collard greens (my new experiments), tomatoes, peppers, and some herbs.
I was AMAZED because I planted these on Thursday, and nearly half had sprouted by the following Tuesday. All my tomatoes are up, as are the cabbage family. The peppers take longer–sometimes up to two weeks.
I was also able to plant some things outside. I’m running into trouble–some of my grids are breaking. I’m at least one short, so I took one from a neighboring bed, and planted my onions. Then I put it back. Since I planted the entire bed at once, I have no need to differentiate the squares.
I planted mostly yellow onions, some red onions, and a few transplants I bought for cheap.
I took some pictures so you can see–it would be pretty hard to get the onions spaced this evenly . . .
