Home Spun reprints #77-79 Planting Seeds
Marina and Sierra have been planting seeds this past week. Looking back at this early set of comics, I see nothing has changed...except for the number of cats tramping through the seedlings! I know I've said this before, but our preferred method of seed starting is to use peat pellets. They are much neater than the bags of dirt we used in our early years of planting. For seed trays, I reuse the plastic containers my husband gets from ordering Chinese food. They are deep enough for the inch high peat pellets and they have handy clear plastic covers that protect fresh planted seeds from cats and act as mini-greenhouses. Now I just need a way to stick them to the shelf so that they can't be pushed off by a stretching cat.
