It’s a beautiful day outside, but before I head out to enjoy it, I want to share the progress that I’m making with my little plant babies!
I am starting some plants indoors from seeds this year, which is something I’ve never done successfully in the past (I tried once a few years ago and ended up with very moldy tomato seedlings. It wasn’t pretty).
I’m happy to report that I’m having some success! Laurel suggested that yogurt cups would make great little pots, so I started collecting. When my seedlings were ready to be put into soil, the yogurt cups were the perfect size!
I poked some holes in the bottoms of the yogurt cups to let water get through (I’ve been bottom-watering mostly, so the holes are important for that, as well), put some soil in, and planted my little seedlings. Easy, peasy!
I have three more tomato plants that I’ll be potting today, and two more collard greens. I also have some onions that I need to decide what to do with. If I can get the garden ready, I can probably just put those outside at this point. But, to be realistic, that’s not going to happen this week….. so I should probably just be honest and plant them in some big yogurt containers until I find the motivation to work on the garden.
