OK, let's start with "I don't have a green thumb." I get on this gardening adventure every year and rarely does it work. I have high hopes for this year though, even with our deathly hot summers, that I will have a little garden of my own. I bought sweet peppers, basil and oregano. Since I love to cook, I figured these would work for me and I won't have to continue going to the grocery store and paying $3 for a bunch of herbs. I also bought some impatiens, since AC wanted some flowers to grow in our yard as well.
I pulled out some pots I had stored away from last year's Easter party that I had purchased at Dollar Tree for $1 each. I also happened to have a bag of soil, so I used that. These seeds were all barely-cover types so I didn't really need that much soil. I put the seed-starting pods in the pots, added dirt, seeds and water and VOILA.......
Oh and here my assistant helping me label the pots:
So $8.35 later, I am hoping to have fresh herbs and peppers in my yard in a couple of months. According to the instructions, I have to keep the seedlings inside until they sprout and then I can take them outside. I will keep you posted on how this turns out. I'm very excited about this!
