It's very timely for now it is time in our garden to prepare for the growing season by starting off seeds in trays ready for later spring planting.
My motherinlaw and I spent the afternoon with packets of seedling mix and our seed stash, starting off seeds in trays. We have decided (or rather, she decided) that the old pigpen would be a good raising place, since it gets sun, and is warm, but seeds wont be damaged by late frosts. In the absence of a potting shed or garden shed, I concurred.
We had quite a little conveyor belt system going, she put in the mix, I watered and put in seeds, then she topped with a small sprinkle and named the tray.
Now we have quite a collection of filled trays.
|Our working table, this was the first few trays we potted up|

|Kale seedlings in the main garden, from seed I collected last Autumn|
|With only 19 seeds in this packet, it is hardly value for money!|
