Homeschool life lesson for today;
"Better late than never."
For some reason, I've been putting off starting our garden seeds.
I've had a plan drawn up since late winter, when the snow was still falling.
The seeds, starter kit and soil have been patiently waiting.
I decided today was the day.
Right after breakfast, I cleared the table and got out our supplies.
We filled the starter cells with soil and misted it down.
This was dear son's favorite part.
He misted some more....
We put three tiny seeds in each "cell" and I labeled them with plastic knives.
(I broke off the sharp edges.)
We won't have enough garden space this year for all these, so I'll likely do pots for a few of the plants.
More soil to cover the seeds, more water and then placed the lid on top.
We thought the warmest place for them right now might be by the fireplace where the pilot light stays continually lit.
The packet says they should start sprouting in 7 - 10 days. The last frost in our area is usually around Mother's Day.
We are hoping to set up our next bed this evening. I have onions (red and yellow) to get in the ground. I think we'll go ahead and plant the lettuce too. If we get a threat of frost, I'll just cover the plants.
Are you doing any gardening this year?
I'm linking up with Stephanie at The Enchanting Rose for her weekly link-up and Angi at the Homestead Blog Hop.
