And We’re Off!

The seeds, at least the first shipment, have arrived! I have gone through them all, sorting them by variety, then putting them in the order they should be started.

This weekend, I’ll run to Kelly Seed and pick up the rest of my materials for starting seeds.

But first…the schedule.

January-February
Spinach
Kale
Brussels sprouts
Peas
Broccoli
Thyme
Sage
Oregano
Cilantro
Lavender

March
Marigolds
Nasturtium
Lettuce (numerous varieties)
Carrots
Celery
Basil
Rosemary
Parsley
Peppers
Okra
Tomatoes
Amaranth

April
Corn
Cucumbers
Peppers
Melons
Squash
Pumpkins
Tomatoes

I’ll start all seeds listed above in jugs, bottles, ice cream tubs…pretty much any recycled container I can get my hands on.

As I mentioned in a previous post, this is a test and I plan to start a few flats inside as well.

Even though there are tons and tons of gardeners in the blogosphere who have great success with this method, there is no guarantee that this gardener will have success.

This gardener is just learning.

I will also direct sow some seeds from the above list as well as others as soon as the ground can easily be worked.

Direct Sow
Squash
Watermelon
Pumpkins
Corn
Carrots
Marigolds
Nasturtium
Lettuce
Amaranth
Onions
Chamomile
Parsley
Shallots
Radishes
Sweet potatoes
Chives

I’m sure my back deck will be a sea of milk jugs. All the new varieties of tomatoes and peppers alone will fill up several jugs.

I can’t wait!
