I've started this evening. I started 144 pellets with seed. I did: 24 carrots (2 varieties) 24 radishes 24 scallions 24 garlic chives (I have a regular chive plant outside already so this is for variety) 24 impatiens 12 yellow squash 12 corn (an early variety) I have enough peat pellets to refill one of my two trays, so I'll pick up another but I really shoudn't start anything else till I'm finished with the current two trays. I want to though. It will be hard to resist. :lol: Outside, I have two big planter bowls (they're up on a decorative wall in front of the front door) and I'm going to rake them out, add compost/soil and plant two varieties of zinnias. Last year we planted a wildflower mix in these and few sprouted but we didn't tend to them well or fix up the soil (I think it's the same soil from when the house was built in 2003, cause the owners said they didn't plant in those after the first year). Some are sprouting now and I plan to just til them in...maybe a few will come back and sprout. Then, with my containers, I have two new 3cu bags of compost/potting mix and will fill two 20 gal. sterilite tubs and my 3 remaining planters. I have to transfer some things to larger containers and will do that. I still have 6 small tomato plants to get into containers as well as zuchini. Also finally getting some hand-me-down pots from Craigslist and will pick those up tomorrow. I still need more soil/compost. The 3cu bags I get are $8 each, which isn't too bad but I'm on bag 6 now and it's adding up....and dh and I started doing Dave Ramsey this past week, so it's...um...getting harder to spend this money! Yeah, it's an investment in the kids, etc. but not a necessity I guess. But I digress. The nice thing is that once we build our real beds (doing square-foot style beds as soon as we can) I plan to recycle as much of this potting mix into the beds as I can, so I won't have to go out and buy a million more bags all at once. Then I'm going to gradually refill all my containers and planters slowly, so it won't break the bank.
