Seed Starting

Hello again, Garden Gals and Guys!! Well, it's seed starting time again. I am starting a little later this year than I have in the past because I don't want my plants to get leggy. I really need to get more grow lights!

Here's what's on tap for this year: sweet peppers, hot peppers (habaneros), onions (long white bunching and Golden Grande), watermelons (Crimson Sweet), collards (Georgia), lettuce (mesclun mix and Simpson Elite), beans (Kentucky Wonder), and tomatoes (Sungold, Pineapple and Beefsteak). I'm also trying my hand this year at leeks and bok choi. We'll see how that goes.

Of course, I'll have my herbs too. I'm thinking mostly mint, sage and basil since those are what I use the most of. I am just too, too excited about getting in the garden! It's going to be a great growing season. I just have to find ways to combat the stink bugs and other varmints that will be in abundance due to the mild winter *ick*.

Well, until next time garden gals and guys!

Happy gardening!!!


  1. Welcome back! I think we're all going to have lots of bugs this year.

  2. Good to hear from you again. I purchased 2 ft shop lights on e-bay for $10.00 each.

    I also purchased Trinidad Scorpion (Butch T) seeds.

    Watring for first pictures of your garden.


  3. Audra, Great to see your blogging again this year! I am going to go simple this year after last year's Groundhog Feast! Tomatoes, Peppers, Eggplant and Basil. Trying to find someone to rototill my plot right now. Looking forward to all your pictures and hints. Was the organic fertilizer you use called Plantone? Love and God's Blessing! Cindy

  4. Ooo yeah, yulk...I just thought about all the bugs that may really be prolific because of the mild winter we've had...Mmmm the Crisom Sweet sounds delicious. I remember your Melons from last year.

  5. I'm still admiring your garden cage! Looking forward to following your blog and watching your progress.

  6. Yes .. the cage .. do tell :) (or lead to where you've already told) .. I'm going basic too .. more bang for the buck. Is it OK if I link this blog on mine?


  7. Hello, Everyone!!! Thank you so much for your wonderful comments. Cindy....the fertilizer I use is composted horse manure. I also use mushroom compost...those two things mixed together really do wonders for my garden.

    Vetsy...yeah I'm not looking forward to the bugs *ish*

    Rmgales....Thanks for the kind words about the garden cage. My hubby came up with the design and built it for me. We were tired of the squirrels getting to everything!

    Mrs. Mac...absolutely link my blog to on yours! It would be an honor! My hubby made the cage for was his own design.

    I will be doing some more gardening this week! It's getting nice and warm outside!

  8. Oh..big brother...let me know how those seeds are! I was going to buy them but they are just WAY too hot! :o)

    Kate...thanks for the welcome back...I think I'll buy a bug suit now to wear so they don't get on me! LOL
