This is my first year trying to start everything from seeds, so I’m using Bio Domes. Instead of worrying about getting the soil just right, I planted the seeds in these grow sponges. Then they’ll hang out in little greenhouse-like things until they germinate.
I ordered most of my seeds from tinyseeds.com. They have a reasonably priced organic selection, and only sell non-GMO seeds. With them, there’s no chance of unwittingly planting a Monsanto frankenfood garden :)
Soon I’ll begin the delicate dance of direct sowing outdoors. When exactly is “as soon as soil can be worked” and how do I know when the “soil temperature is warm”?
How many plants will I get out of these two little trays? Stay tuned for a seed watch ’09 update…
