Last week, Josh and I decided to plant some seeds. Apparently, every parent is supposed to plant seeds with their children. If you didn’t know, now you do.
So we got to it: cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, bell peppers, dahlias and marigolds. Josh loves flowers and especially yellow ones. He was very excited.
One week later, and they’ve been doing great. I RTFM (or directions, whatever) and they’ve been doing fine. They sat outside yesterday for the first time; we skipped today because it was so windy. Like, windy-windy. The cucumbers are doing the best so far; bell peppers have yet to sprout. They take as long as two weeks to sprout! No wonder I’m paying $3 EACH for them at the store.
I’m really hoping to get something started. I think it will be fun, and could actually cut down our food costs. I need to plant more cucumbers next week (plant in 3 week intervals for maximum cucumberage) and I also need to get some regular tomatoes as you really can’t make sauce out of cherry tomatoes.
