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 started here: Tiny Adventures: Starting Seeds Indoors, and when that didn’t work, I made a second run at it: Seed Starting, Part Deux.
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! Continue reading
About a week ago I put together a very homemade rig to get a few veggie seeds started indoors. I was very proud of myself, as I was able to figure out a way to use mostly materials from around the house (you can find that full post here).
Here’s how it has gone: Continue reading
Just a quick post here. I decided to attempt starting some seeds indoors this year for some of my garden veggies. Usually I buy seedlings from the local garden store in May, but I chose a few plants to start myself this year. The lucky winners are: collard greens, tomatoes, and onions!
I’ve added to the challenge by constructing a little greenhouse out of materials I already had at home, instead of going out and buying stuff. Since I really have no idea what I’m doing and I’m experimenting as I go, it feels quite adventurous and fun. Therefore, I am counting this as a tiny adventure.
Here’s what I have so far:
In January, I embarked on a mission to have at least one tiny adventure a week, with the idea that not all adventures have to be big or epic. Opportunities for adventure are all around us, big or small, every day.
Well, I made it about six weeks before realizing that the whole weekly thing was just a bit too much. But, even though my tiny adventure posts have been less frequent, I’ve still been doing them, and I’ve found that my awareness of tiny adventure potential has increased. The more I embark on little adventures, the more they seem to just pop up.
Here are some of the ways I’ve been inserting tiny adventures into my life: Continue reading
