Seedling Tray 1

My February of revising seed catalogs seems to quickly have passed. And now, here we are, mid-March. Some of my online orders have been making appearances at my door. Time to seed stuff? Already? Wasn’t it -30 with 3 feet of snow two days ago?

These little trays of jiffys are quick and easy, although I’m resolved to settle on a reusable tray that I can fill with sterile potting soil. Not only because I’m cheap and would love to eliminate the consumables here, but because these little netting thingers didn’t seem to break down in my previous garden reliably, so I’d end up picking some out in the fall.

This tray: greek oregano, sweet basil, chervil, lavender, wild thyme, savory, marjoram, sage, dill, and cayenne chili. I don’t think I’ll be able to produce enough herbs this year to satiate my garden design plan, and I wouldn’t mind a few herby-house-plants too. I also seeded some wild chive and artemesia frigida for some ‘moist stratification’ action. Haven’t done this one before. Basically seed, moisten, stick in garage to freeze and thaw a bunch of times prior to them being ready to go.

Seeding is exciting – so much promise of wonderful things to come.
