    Emily Rose, we hope your plant do better then ours did. We bought this same kit at Walmart and attempted to start tomatoes. They grew for a while then “gave up the ghost.” Oh well, the Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away. Have a great day…

    Oh, happy gardening! I love watching the little seedlings pop up-it’s one of the simple pleasures I suppose. :)

    That is very neat, I hope your garden produces plentifully! The pictures and colors were beautiful.

    What did you plant in your garden this year? I planted tomatoes, cauliflower, broccoli, snap peas and lettuce, but my broccoli bolted, resulting in a very ugly, nearly-dead plant. Oh well, maybe next year!

    Rachel, in these little peat pellets are flowers to add “extra beauty” to our garden. In the garden we’re planting onions, lettuce, potatoes, kale, spinach, broccoli, cabbage, green beans, squash and pickling cucumbers. We’ll also be adding some new plants of strawberries. Thank you for sharing what you planted! We haven’t planted everything yet, as we’re still in a chilly season – we will soon, though. I’m sorry to hear about your broccoli – but, yes, there’s always next year!

    This is my favorite verse. Can’t wait to see pictures of your garden this year! Easter Blessings!

    Do you know what does really well in those little peat pots? PETUNIAS! I started Wave Pentunias last year (from Harris Seeds) and they did great in the peat pots! Just make sure you press the seeds (if you can even see them…they are teensy!) down a bit to give good contact all around with the “soil.” Harris Seeds gives excellent instructions concerning temperature, moisture, etc.

    Emily Rose,
    I have done the same thing in the little peat pots for tomatoes and peppers and have taken photos already. It is so much fun to see the gardening inspiration spreading. I can’t wait to see the posies once they are in the soil just blooming their little hearts out :)
    Keep up the great work, and Happy Resurrection Day to your whole family!

    You have so a nice blog! And the seeds on the picture are so cute !

    I have just come in from our own little greenhouse, where I have seedlings for cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, peppers, tomatoes, leek, spring onion, chives, organo, coriander….and so on….and on! I *love* to admire the seedlings, and I absolutely *love* it when I see one just popping through the soil. Bliss!
    Happy growing! x

    Emily Rose,
    What a wonderful blog – I love dropping by to see what’s new.
    What about those cute little pods? Are they peat? Where did you get them? I’m always starting seeds in plastic containers, but those look like they can go directly into the ground = perfect!

  20. Emily Rose on Apr 26, 2011 said:

    Erica, thank you! They are peat pellets that can purchased at plant nurseries or in the garden center of supermarket or hardware store.
