It's gardening time again and we're so excited! Indoors we've started broccoli, cabbage and onions. This week or next we plan to start the tomatoes, peppers, and tomatillos. We have more plants we want to start then we have room for....will have to think on that for next year. We did save the bottom shelf for the all important Solanaceae plants!
The onions are a little unruly since we just took the lid off.
Since this photo, we've thinned all the starts to just two or three per cell.
A big part of gardening for us is, of course, the planning! Since we garden organically, we want to make sure to rotate our crops regularly to avoid pest buildup.
A nice sunny craft room with happy cats is a good place to plan...
We are using up many seeds from years past but did purchase a fair bit from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds this year. There's so many fun heirlooms to try!
We also sowed peas, lettuce and spinach in the garden....
which makes us very happy!
