Getting onions, jalapenos and carrots started from seed.
GARDENING IS A GREAT WAY TO SPEND YOUR EXTRA FREE TIME and I started onion and jalapeno peppers from seed. And they actually started to sprout! With tender loving care and much patience, and keeping them in the house so the birds and squirrels don't mess with them, I managed to get over 2 dozen starter sprouts from jalapeno seed and sowed onion seeds in a mulch garden with extra top soil to get them going. It is getting late in the spring and I should have started them a month earlier, in spite of some of the very cold mornings of early spring as the weather has been cooler this time of year in Dallas, than last year at the same time.
AS TIME PASSED BY, and the tiny sprouts rose from the dirt inside the tiny little egg carton sections, I was totally surprised and it was unexpected. For me, a novice at gardening.
CARROTS ARE NEXT TO PLANT FROM SEED and I want to get them started ASAP. I hope your day was a good one. It's going to be another hot Texas summer. I have no promise of a mild season this time around, but one can only hope for better days ahead for milder summer weather for planting my favorite things, which would indeed be quite the list.
SO WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? GET STARTED! GROW YOU SOME VEGGIES!
