Testing our Green Thumbs

On Sunday, my mom and I planted some seeds in hopes of beginning our vegetable garden. For the past few years we've done some container gardens on our patio and we hope to continue this year.

In these 72 little seedling coir disks, we planted Roma tomatoes, cucumbers, green peppers, yellow squash and basil. We are keeping the tray in the dining room in front of the bay window (not in it because the directions say to keep the trays out of direct light). Once we see little sprouts - hopefully by mid week next week, we can remove the clear plastic top.

Here we planted some cherry tomato seeds in a hanging basket, hoping one day soon we will have a cascading plant, providing us with lots of juicy little tomatoes!

We may plant a few pepper and Roma tomato plants in the ground but we hope to plant most in containers.

I'll keep you up to date on the progress of our little seedlings!

  1. You have two of the greenest thumbs I know, so I am confident I will be munching on your homegrown goods very soon! :)
