Starting plants!

It's that time of year to start plants for the garden. I use newspapers to make our own seed pots. They area good size for the roots to grow and get a good start and you can plant them straight into the garden. The roots will grow out through them and they will biodegrade in the garden.

Here's what I planted:

12 peppers including: California Wonder, Crispy Hybrid, and Early thickest

5 peppers that are warm called Pablano

4 Peppers that are colored: Carnival mix and Rainbow blend

30 Heirloom tomatoes including: Mortgage Lifter, Brandywine, and Beefy Boy

3 Swiss Chard, rainbow

5 Squash: Zucchini and Yellow straightneck (I will plant these every four weeks throughout the season to have successive plants. I love summer squash.

Here are a couple of the flats, ready to plant. I planted three flats today and have three more to still do!

Now we just need some sun! I wrap them in plastic wrap to give them more humidity for sprouting.

I have some more to do but this is a start!
