Seedling Update 2014

Planted seeds on August 25th.  In just 12 days look how the seedlings have grown.  A few more weeks and I can either transplant directly to the garden or, depending on the weather, pot them up in larger containers.

  1. Oh I couldn't bear to look at starting another garden. My brother in Texas plants two gardens. By September I am fed up with our, ready for it to turn to dust. You do such an amazing job starting seeds. I will be interested to see the garden growing.

    1. Hi Ann, I look forward to the winter garden, less bugs to deal with! Let's hope your confidence in my seed growing abilities pays off. They looked pretty good today so keep your fingers crossed.

  2. We have just returned home after traveling over 9000 miles - my garden did surprisingly well on its own. Our first frost is headed this way on Friday night. I would love to have a much longer gardening season!

    1. I will need to get over to your blog to see if you have posted any photos from you travels. Thanks for taking the time to come by!

  3. How great you're planting more veggies from seeds. I love growing from seeds, it's very rewarding and even better when you have a beautiful harvest. Fresh veggies from the garden is the best! :-)

    1. Hi Priscilla, I love starting from seed. There is something about seeing the first sign of the sprout coming through the soil that is so rewarding.


Thank you for taking time to visit my blog, I love hearing from you, stay as long as you like, Carla
