My seedlings have finally sprouted!!! I always love when they start to pop up out of the dirt; it just amazes me that a whole giant plant can grow from that tiny little seedling.
It snowed here last week (eww!) so it’s clearly not time to move them outdoors yet; plus they’re still pretty small. I want to let them grow a little bit bigger before subjecting them to the outdoor climate.
But they’re starting to get too big for the little seed starter pods they’re in now, which means I get to transplant them! If you’ve never transplanted seedlings before, check out this post I wrote last year for tons of tips and tricks. Luckily, transplanting seedlings isn’t super difficult as long as you have some flower pots and good potting soil.
That’s where Nature’s Care comes in! Their organic potting soil is going to be perfect to help these little seedlings grow up big and strong without any harsh chemicals or pesticides. The whole Nature’s Care line is organic, which means everything from soil to plant food to pest and disease control is chemical free; perfect for any edible garden!
My edible garden this year is actually going to be a tea garden! Plus basil, of course, because who doesn’t love homemade pesto?! But mostly I plan to grow lavender, anise, bergamot, chamomile, and peppermint so I can make herbal teas. And the best thing is, the plants will be 100% natural and organic!
They’re all growing strong so far; look how tall those anise seedlings in the back tray are!
Once the weather warms up enough, I’ll transplant the seedlings again, out of the pots and into this giant garden bed in our back yard. I can’t wait to start gardening outdoors; I’m so excited that I finally have a back yard!
What are you growing this year? Any favorite recipes with ingredients from your edible garden?
