Seeds in Dirt

9 02 2008

Last night we managed to get the first round of seeds in dirt. We planted broccoli and cauliflower for spring harvest (these are a couple of those crops you can do twice a year), and then some perennial herbs–rosemary, thyme, lemon balm, and savory. Here was my little seeding station:


We are planting in a variety of things. Ben sent us a link to make origami newspaper pots, which are cool, because they can be planted right in the ground and the newspaper just decomposes. In this picture, I am using toilet paper tubes cut in half with the end folded in to prevent dirt from falling out the bottom. And then we are reusing plastic pots which have to be cleaned and disinfected in a mild bleach solution.

I can’t wait til something starts growing!
