Seeds? Oh, we've got seeds.

This, my friends, is the beginning of our spring/summer 2012 garden.
The beginning. This is set one of three.

We tried a new way to start seeds. The wood boxes are filled with compressed plugs of dirt, where we put a seed. The bottom black trays are "traditional" cells with dirt and seeds. The plugs worked... okay. However, the effort and pain in the rear factor of making them outweighed the benefits, so we stuck to the black trays.

We have everything from chammomile to regular ole' tomatoes in there. Some lettuces, broccoli, melons, and kiwi. Did you know there is a hardy kiwi that can live in our zone? I think we're 6A. Anyway, hubby introduced me to kiwi about a week ago and I'm in love.

In the back, we also have strawberries, lettuces, asparagus, carrots, and spinach coming up. Those are already planted. We have corn planted that should be sprouting any day now.

Luckily we have plenty of space to put all this stuff!
