Starting Seeds

We are going to do a garden this year! I am so excited! I love going out to the garden in the quiet of the morning to weed and pray. Okay, I do love the vegetables, too!

Someone asked me how much we were going to plant this year. I said, “as much as Dennis will let me!”

This past week, I went to a few stores and found all the seeds I wanted to plant, less corn. I buy my corn at a farm seed store because I can purchase a large amount in bulk.

Today, Elizabeth and I sat down, sorted the packages, and wrote down on the calendar what needs to be started in pete pots when.  The list is as follows:

March 23rd: Spearmint

April 6th: All the peppers (sweet and hot),  roma tomatoes

April 20th: Jelly bean tomatoes, cabbage, honeydew

April 27th Early Girl tomatoes

Our goal plant dates will be the first week of June. If they don’t all get in then, that’s okay. I will share later what else we will be adding. Elizabeth wanted to do some herbs and some of the other girls wanted to do flowers. What fun!

  1. Well, it seems it deleted my other longer comment, so I will simply have to write another one then copy it after writing it so it won’t be deleted again. I hate it when it does that. 🙁

    This was a reminder that I need to go and sit down with Momma and finish planning out our garden for this year.

    I want to grow tons more tomatoes and peppers (HOT!) to can. We buy organic canned tomatoes at the store every week but nothing beats pureeing your own home-grown ones and using them to make your own sauce with.

    I am planning on growing my own herbs, drying them out during the summer then using them during the winter, maybe even bringing some of the plants inside for the winter. I have wanted to do some herbs for a while, but never got to do it. Hopefully this year I will be able to.

    Momma has two flower gardens up by the house I intend to tend to this year. (not that I didn’t before, but I will moreso this year).

    I will also be planting some ‘help’ flowers in the garden to help with the pests, like sunflowers, marigolds and another one I think. Ever done that before? We did a couple summers ago and the sunflowers grew over six feet tall. Beautiful they were. 🙂

    Well, I’d best go. Will you tell the girls I said hi? 🙂


  2. I forgot to type “up” so I lost everything. So here I go again lol.
    Oh how I miss my garden. I wish I had one again. I plan on having an herb garden at lest. I think if I don’t get my hands in some dirt, I will go crazy lol.
    Wish you luck with yours. Eat a fresh tomato for me will you?
