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.
