Seeds Sown FEB 2013

I've been itching to get things going for my garden this year. I moved to a new place and haven't been able to lay out my plots yet, but over the weekend I did manage to get some seeds started!

Seeds started:

10 Cherry Tomatoes
10 Black Lettuce
24 Marigolds (to keep pests away from the garden)
15 Sweet Basil
15 Cilantro

I know this is not a lot but I had to do SOMETHING. Some of these are last year's seeds and they are all the cheap ones you get at the Dollar Store or Walmart. 

I'm expecting a shipment of heirloom seeds from Baker Heirloom Seeds soon that I absolutely cannot wait to try. They are also sending a copy of The Heirloom Life Gardener by  Jere and Emilee Gettle. I am a sucker for gardening books.

I've also seen some pins lately about regrowing produce from your fridge. I decided to try it with some green onions I had on hand that were in danger of going bad. If you've seen those pins too and have been wondering if it really works, IT DOES!

I had cut those suckers down the white part and they are growing back. Success! Next I'm going to try it with romaine lettuce which is said to work as well. I'll let you know.

Anybody else have any gardening going on yet?
