Sunday Afternoon- What a great time to start seeds indoors! Today would be a great day to start cool season greens inside – kale, cabbage, chard, lettuce… if you have a cold frame or even row cover and are ready to begin your outdoor watering routine.. you could also start all those things outside today (especially down south Amber!!)I am also starting my sunflower and pea shoot sprouts so we can have fresh greens asap!!
I have to admit I am missing my own Planting calendar this season, so I dug up a few posts from my archives from the days before I ever made the glossy pretty calendar… So for this year I thought I would just share with you some of my informative blogs posts, already written and ready to go!! My gift to you to jump start your growing season!
Here is the Recap from my seeding class from years past
How to make Homemade Potting Soil
How to make Wooden Planting Flats
Also, if you are a more hands on learner- My dear friend Amanda will be teaching an indoor seeding class next weekend at the wonderful Ampersand Learning Center. I am sure it will be super informative and get you growing!
There are also some cool classes Home Grown New Mexico is putting on this season too that I want to check out, including a cool looking one called Evolution Gardening/Revisiting the Victory Garden in the 21st century. Awesome!!
So no shortage of things to learn and do these days! Let’s get Growing!
Pea and sunflower shoot sprouts! How fun! I’m going to start those this week. Those are best done indoors? I have a cold frame but I’m having trouble with little insects eating everything that sprouts. I planted swiss chard, kale, spinach, and brocolli today. Thank you for all of the links you put up for local events and planting information from previous blog posts! I appreciate all this help! Take care.
