Grow Your Own – Sustainable Seedlings

Grow Your Own – Sustainable Seedlings

Pink_WateringCan

This post was written a few years ago. It’s the first time in too long that we’re going to have a significant vegetable and herb garden. Time to get those seedlings going!

I’ve had some great flower gardens in my day and a few good veggie and herb successes, but I don’t consider myself a great or very experienced gardener in any way. So, I thought I’d document my adventure this growing season and hope it is informative by way of a successful bounty of organic food rather than a what-not-to-do series!

Sustainable Seedlings

It all starts with seeds. I wanted to find a source for organic and non-GMO seeds. I love the concept of a local seed exchange, but I’m out of the loop and needed to start fresh. I hope to be able to harvest some healthy organic seeds at the end of this season and participate in some seed exchanging for the next growing season.

Here’s the best tutorial on making newspaper seed-starter pots that I found and used.
