Since I’m a newbie at starting a vegetable garden, I am starting out with just a few things. I decided I wanted tomatoes for salsa and sauces. Of course, I will also need jalapenos and parsley to go with that. We also like carrots, sweet peas, and green beans so I went with those.
I filled my pots with soil. Don’t they look like little hamburgers?
I then wet the soil thoroughly with warm water. You can’t really see that but I did, I promise.
I used a pencil to make a hole in each pot.
I added a seed (or two or three) per hole. Some of the seeds were really tiny so a few more found their way into the holes.
I covered the seeds with the dirt and then watered again with warm water. After that, I put the green house cover over them. You can already see the steam generating inside the container. Fingers crossed that this works!
I forgot to mention earlier in this post to remember which pots you put each kind of seed (blonde moment.) You will need to know this so you can label them.
