Here in Minnesota we cannot plant our garden until the end of May because of frost .... some people believe you shouldn't plant until after the full moon in June! I just pay attention to the weather. LOL
With having such a short planting season, we definitely have to start seeds in the house at the end of March to give some of the plants an opportunity to reach maturity.
This year I started tomatoes, peppers, broccoli and cauliflower. We don't have a LARGE garden for these seedlings, but last year I was still able to harvest over 300 pounds of fresh vegetables from this little round garden! Our large 20 foot by 60 foot garden is strictly for potatoes and onions.
So far so good, the seedlings are getting taller and will soon be re-planted into bigger individual containers. I did have to plant tomatoes for the second time though ... for some unknown reason, the first batch did not sprout.
With Mother Nature playing cruel tricks and giving us some snow yesterday, I don't think I have to worry about getting these babies outside too soon.
Do you have to start seedlings and if you do, how are they doing?
Remember to give your loved ones a hug!
