Seed Starting

I started my onions this week and I already have a few sprouts! They didn't do too well last year when I started them inside so hopefully this year will be better. I think I was too late anyway. I'm growing green and white onions this year. Also, I'm using recycled takeout containers instead of egg cartons so hopefully I won't have to transfer them into anything bigger until I put them outdoors next month.
 I also re potted and moved my aloe vera plant because it's been way too big for the window sill for a long time now. It poked me in the face all the time when I was doing the dishes and would fall off randomly! Hopefully it will get enough light in it's new home. It's probably quadrupled in size since I got it a couple years ago:
 I replaced the aloe vera with green onions on the window sill. Hopefully they do well! 
 Also, my sweet potatoes have slips growing on them! Yay!!

Have you started any seeds? Are you doing any garden planning?

  1. Missy! Hurray for you! We've had some warm, sunny days up here in PA and it makes me want to dig in the dirt too. For some years now, I've wanted to try starting our own seed...but we don't have much natural light in this old farm house and no real space to do it...I'm hoping for the addition of a small greenhouse someday in the near future. Until then, I will just enjoy watching you start your seeds and try and glean a little wisdom from you! Happy growing!!

  2. I haven't started any seeds yet. That is not in my budget yet..but my goal is to figure out the costs first, then I'll give it a try :) Oh, those sweet potatoes...love them!! They taste good and they're good for you, too :) Love and hugs from the ocean shore of California, Heather :)

  3. That's awesome! I dont think I'll be starting any seeds inside this year. I will start them all in the Spring. But this post lifts my spirits - oh how I love plants and the thought of this year's garden! Hooray!

  4. I'm in south Florida, zone 10a, so my growing season is pretty much opposite of everyone else. I've got a tomato & pepper plant flowering & starting to fruit, and my seeds have sprouted for the following: romaine lettuce, cabbage, and broccoli.
