It's that time of year again, when gardeners permanently stain their fingers in varying shades of brown and green.
Aspiring to be one of them, I rustled around in my seed bin to see what early starters I could begin my gardening venture with for the year. And I found quite a few candidates! These beauties have proudly displayed a healthy shade of lime green, I dare say the most eagerly anticipated color worldwide.
Baby Roma tomato sprouts angling towards the dim February sun.
Tiny Chamomile, just on the verge of looking hopeful.
First three candidates. Our family is a big fan of quickly growing garden fruits. Nature's candy!
And the last five that need two months indoor growing time. Herbs and such.
I love this SeedGeeks company. This is where great design comes in handy. Could you make any easier to follow directions? Seriously well done.
Now for my little helpers. Expandable soil discs. That's a lot of mini watering cans full of water, at least 50!
The all important labeling of sprouts. I'm always sure to take pictures just in case the tags get mixed up. Ask me how I know to do this :)
Tiny, tiny seeds for tiny hands. Still it's very difficult to get the right number of seeds in each hole.
And signs of life!
Thanks for taking a peek at the beginning of my green gardening journey for 2018. Here's to many more trays of the same! @allforthegood
