Seeds are coming UP!

WOW…  a little earth, a little water, and some sunshine, and MAGIC!

We have sprouts in the garden beds already.  No matter how many times I am witness to this process, it amazes me in its wonder.

OK, I feel like a kid in the candy store or maybe the young guy on the commercial where he says, “I’m too excited to sleep!”  I just received an email from the seed company saying our seeds have shipped.  Two more days and we fill the raised beds with compost… and then it all really begins!  This means i have a couple of days to figure out our planting plan – sketchbook, here I come!


We ordered seeds today!  We ordered from Botanical Interests because we could select seeds that are without GMOs, organic, heirloom, drought tolerant, and can take full sun.  We also looked at Seeds of Change for many of the same reasons, but their seeds cost a little bit more.

Now to figure out what to plant where.  I’ve been looking at companion planting charts and soil pH requirements.  I found a great short article about companion planting at the National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT) National Sustainable Agriculture Information Service’s website page.
