The other thing I managed to accomplish last weekend was sowing some seeds!
It’s just vegetables this year. I have flower seeds to sow, but I’m going to try sowing them directly in the garden this year and see if I have better luck than last.
A few of these veggies probably should have been direct-sown (i’m looking at you cucumbers and carrots, and possibly spinach). But gardening is always an ongoing experiment, so we’ll see how this works out. Also… I just didn’t read the directions and sowed all my veggie seeds at once. Well… not all of them. I only did a little tray of each, so I sowed about half of each pack. That way, if this doesn’t work out, I can do some direct sowing as well.
And another little experiment I have going…
Re-growing celery and romaine lettuce from scraps. I started them both in water, and just potted them up. They are both in a nice, bright window so we’ll see how they do. They can go outside when the weather gets a little warmer too.

I typically plant cucumbers from plants so I think if you get little plants from those seeds it will be fine to plant them. I know spinach likes cooler weather so you may want to look up when the best time to plant that outside is where you are. Good luck with your garden! I love your plant and kitty pics 😊
I’m addicted to the Tik Tok dude that grows everything from kitchen scraps. I wish I had the place for it because I’d be growing everything.
I’ve been thinking a lot doing celery. Look easy.
Have only tried seeds for partridge pea plants, and I didn’t do very well.
Hoping there are a few scattered here and there, to grow on their own.
Really, you could think of my gardens are the Wild West; no law, no society, just WILD.
The squash will take over before long, hope you can plant outside soon:)
I am enjoying following along with your experiments.
It’s fun to watch how your plants do every year. I always planted my cucumbers outside as plants, otherwise it took too long to get started if I planted the seeds outside.
Hopefully the soil will soon warm outside for you. It was 57F here today and we’re supposed to get 4 inches of snow tonight! Crazy weather!
Yum! I know you are chomping at the bit to get your hands in the yard gardens again!
