Sow what?

Well, I may not be able to sew, but we can try our hand at sowing. Last night Andrew transferred some carefully selected seeds into a seed starter "greenhouse" (basically a divided plastic tray with a cover). Some of these seedlings should start to sprout in as little as one week! Then they will be transferred into peat pots that can later be planted directly into the soil. I am becoming more and more convinced that there will be no room to sit on our porch this summer.

Here's what we got cooking:

Black from Tula Tomato

Sweet Pea Currant Tomato

Brown Berry Tomato

Beam's Yellow Pear Tomato

Greek Oregano

Purple de Milpa Tomatillo


Wapsipinicon Peach Tomato

Miniature Chocolate Bell Pepper

if you haven't already purchased- keep an eye out for eco-friendly peat pots. peat bogs take a very long time to recover from harvesting and are critical habitat. They do make those little trays sustainably though.
