I don't know about you, but we have NO leeway or room in our budget to pay more for ANythING.
|The beautiful Missouri sky~perfect gardening conditions.|
Rare Seeds has a huge variety of heirloom seeds, and they are very inexpensive. Especially if you order with a friend or two and split the packs.
We've started basil and oregano in eggshells. I just cracked the top off, emptied the shells to use, filled with starting soil, and popped in some seeds. Monkey helped with that part. We've been keeping them watered and have little one-inch sprouts. I've also cut water bottles off about three inches from the bottom. We're using the bottom cup part to plant more seeds in for starting, zucchini and cucumbers, nothing exotic.
So, for just a few dollars, some recycled containers, and time (then patience to wait for the growing plants) we've got our garden started. I'll do a post with pictures later since I have a camera with dead batteries.
Get your garden planned and planted, and you'll be pleased as punch!
