Planting Seeds

Last year, I planted as many seeds as I could fit under my lights. When they got just a little bigger, I couldn't fit all my seedlings under the lights. This year, I decided to limit my seed planting to 20 seed pots. That way, when they grow there will still be room for them under the lights.

I find it easiest and cheapest to use toilet paper rolls with cupcake wrappers at the bottom.

My children wanted to help, so I waited until Saturday. We planted 8 banana peppers, 1 Riesentraube tomato, 5 yellow round tomatoes from a friend, 6 Mamie Brown's Pink tomatoes ordered from Seed Savers Exchange catalog.

Here's hoping that everything grows beautifully!
