It’s time to sow seeds.
Why start seeds indoors and not directly out? Well, I’m planning to plant warm weather crops like tomatoes, buttnernut squash, zucchinis, okra, watermelons, basil and many others. And I want to have as long of a season as I can get. The temperatures will start to really decrease in to the lower 30s throughout October and the upper 20’s to mid 20s in November.
What you will need:
– Organic seed starting mix, I am using Espoma Organic Seed Starter Premium Potting mix found in True Value. I really prefer the brand Espoma to Scott’s Miracle gro as it has a strictly organic range.
– Peat Pots from ACE hardware, these peat pots are good because I can simply plant the seedlings directly in my future soil and the pots will dissolve and break down. In contrast, using plastic pots for seedlings will cause the tender roots to get irritated during transplantation.
– Light and warmth source, placing the seedlings next to a window is not enough. What am I using to light the seeds into life? This is called Aerogarden; available in Kuwait, and I’ll feature soon in the blog. As for extra warmth, placing a plastic cover on the pots to raise humidity is a good idea.
I’m pretty sure Rocca seeds will sprout the fastest. Start your seeds today and share your experience! 🙂
