Today I will be planting some of my seeds from my seed collection for the Spring Season between now and the end of February top of March. I like to go ahead a get a start on them so that way when it is time to plant them in my raised garden bed they are big and mature enough to get transplanted. Side note: I am not an expert on gardening, so there are a few things that I do not know but am still learning and want to share with you what I have learned and came across to share with you guys.
I will be using seeds from the “Family Sown” collection these are their Fall and Winter Seeds. The variety that I will be planting today are:
- Fava Bean
- Lima Bean
- Pinto Bean
These are a few of the seeds that I planted today from the “Family Sown” collection.
- Red Cabbage
- Brussels Sprout
- Swiss Chard
- Bibb Lettuce
- Red Onion
<—- One of the reasons why I like the “Family Sown” collection seed is that they have a QR code on the back of each seed packet so you can know these important facts:
- How much to water each one?
- How much sunlight each need?
- When to plant them
- Days to germinate
- Planting depth
- Germination Temp
- Seed spacing
- Companion with other plants
- And so much more on each individual seed packet
The (picture) you see on the right is a –> container of where I have soil and purple cabbage seed in. This is a great way if you don’t have any containers to pre-plant your seeds in for the season. I also like to date each container and plant label so I’ll know how long I have planted those seeds or started those.
Here is the finished progress of the first package of seeds by “Family Sown” collections.
I hope you like this post and I will see you at the next Greenhouse Garden post.
For each seed packet, I like to do a handful/half a bag of each seed packet. It all depends on what type of seed it is for example if they are big seeds like cucumber, pumpkin, fava bean, peas, etc. I do one to two seeds for each seed container. For small seeds like the one on the (left) I do a handful/half of a bag of that seed packet. I do a pinch of each seed for each container especially if the container has six rows.
