Seeds seeds seeds! May 3, 2010

I stopped by O.C. Farm Supply to get seed starting trays and mix. I usually start my seeds with peat pellets but, considering that I’ll have 400 sq ft to plant, trays and seed starting mix will be more cost effective. The brand that I bought was Gardner & Bloome. In this particular tray I have pole beans, bush beans, leeks, tomatillos, pak choy, asst lettuce, and okras. I already have some eggplants, cucumbers, and tomatoes that are ready to be planted out…as soon as I finish layering the beds. I LOVE starting plants from seeds and saving seeds. Life from a seed…sometimes a 5 year old seed…is nothing short of a miracle.
