Starting from seeds

Mama and I used to plant our annual garden using small starter plants from a local nursery; but this year, we decided to plant mostly from seeds.

Yesterday we completed our garden box preparations and planted our tomato and celery plants. The celery we like to grow from kitchen scraps, and we received free tomato plants at the Home & Garden Show again! Besides those two, all of our food will be grown from seeds this season.

Mama and I finished seeding our entire planter box today. We are growing watermelon, carrots, radishes, chives, nasturtium, orange and white marigolds, cucumber, turnips, and zucchini. But we banished the zucchini to a smaller planter by itself, because it constantly invaded everything else last year. This year’s garden plans even take into account companion planting — plants that should be grown side by side to benefit each other.

Today’s #OneGoodThing was planting a garden full of seeds with Mama! It also feels great to have finished the research, preparation, and planting so now we can enjoy watching it all grow!

Day 86 of 365. And Day 817 in a row (here’s the first 366 & the following 365)!
