Veggie seedy that is.
If this is your first visit, you should know that I started this blog to chronicle this thing we call life.
Every day is a new day and every day we learn at least one thing.
Don’t you agree?
This post is about the beginning of our journey to growing food…
Wait…that’s a lie.
I actually grew up on a farm. My grandparents had a huge garden, cows, pigs, chickens. I can remember those dreadfully hot summers, when all the family were called under the big oak tree to harvest the corn. Us “kids” were in charge of the shucking. Hated it. It wasn’t the shucking that I hated, but it was that disgustingly fat worm that I would find about every 10 ears.
I was a kid and I thought it was gross!
I can handle insects these days. I’m a big girl now.
I can remember stringing peas with my grandmother and following behind my grandfather dropping the potato heads where he had just made a hole.
These were “chores” and being a kid I really wasn’t a big fan.
Now though, I look back and really cherish those memories.
I’m going to have to move on now before I start getting all emotional and stuff!So…I guess you could say that this is my attempt to go back to my roots.
I even want to get a few hens!
I definitely didn’t see this coming, but it is here and so I am moving forward with it!
I ran across this super awesomely cute blog, Farmhouse 38 and she shared how she decided to start her seeds this year…and it inspired me to do the same.
Below is a pic from her blog.
I’m all about recycling so I decided to “roll” with it.
“Roll”…with it.You can visit these other recycling projects I’ve shared:
Upcycled Tin Cans
Only if you want to. 😉
I saved up some rolls and cut them all in half. The great thing about using these is that they are biodegradable and all that I have to do is stick it in the ground.
…that is if the seeds even make it that far.
Living with Craig, we go through ALOT of TP and he won’t deny it.
Sounded good to me!
I gave them a little more water, placed the lid on (to retain moisture) and put them someplace warm.
Will it ever work?
Yo, I don’t know!
(name that song)
I’ll give you a hint…it rhymes with “dice, dice daby”.
I used pop cycle sticks, black duct tape, and a white paint sharpie.
Then, I cut it in half.
I was going for the “chalkboard” look, thinking real chalk would probably wash away when put outside.
What do you think?
Hopefully these will last a really long time since I used waterproof duct tape and a sharpie.
