This year I wanted to try some different things:
- Starting from seed for all my plants
- Using peat pellets
- Using a greenhouse
- Planting less
So this year I started herbs (basil, oregano, thyme, dill) but I'm not sure which will actually make it. So far, the basil is doing the best. The verdict isn't out yet on the rest.
Then I planted sweetie tomatoes and beefsteak tomatoes.
I started the seeds indoors and recently transplanted many of them into larger containers and putting them in a mini greenhouse outside.
It seems that last year I was able to get better sprouts when I used garden soil instead of the pellets. I'm definitely not an expert on that, but I hope it works out.
When the plants mature I'll transplant them to a more permanent home, but for now they're in the mini greenhouse.
Oh yes, my mint started growing back. Fresh tea anyone?
p.s. Don't use colored craft sticks as plant markers ever. The dye bleeds and it's crazy messy.
