Garden time!

I was al Wal-Mart the other day picking up some stuff and decided to check out what they had in terms of vegetable seeds.  

Found these nifty things.  Pretty much paper or some type of biodegradable material that you start your seeds in, then just rip the pots apart and put them straight into the ground.  40 little pot for $2.  Couldn't pass that up! SO I bought 2.


Went outside today during Caylob's nap time and planted the seeds that I had purchased: corn, 4 types of squash, tomatoes, broccoli, spinach, lettuce, green beans & cucumbers.



There are still a few different ones that I want to get: another variety of tomatoes, okra & onions.


The strawberries are still going from last year and already have a couple blooms, so I just need to transplant them to the new garden site.



I was trying to think of a way to label the seeds so I wouldn't just be guessing when they came up.  It's pretty easy to tell the difference between corn and squash, but not so easy with crookneck & zucchini.

My handy dandy label maker and skewers broken in half.
This weekend we are supposed to drop down into the 50's but by the middle of next week we'll be back in the 70's.

By this time next month, I should be able to transplant them into the big garden.

I love the bio friendly starter packs! I will have to get my hands on those! I've been using the plastic ones and feel obligated to use them from year to year, though by the time I transplant the seedlings, they're cracked and busted. Thanks for the great tip!
