The Seeds Are Started!

It snowed this morning, again, but we decided enough is enough. Spring has to arrive eventually. And when it does, we want to be ready. So Little Man and I hydrated a coconut coir brick (an amazing sustainable seed-starting medium that’s affordable and easy for apartment dwellers to store) and got some seeds started.

We did three varieties of tomatoes – Rutgers, Golden Nugget and Principe Borghese. We also did two types of peppers – Big Red sweet and Jalapenos, as well as some Tom Thumb peas. He really got a kick out of digging in the soil and poking the seeds in. And when spring does eventually decide to show up, we’ll be ready.
