I got the idea from a friend of mine. She posted on facebook all her little started plants that she is tending to like small little babies. She is more of a veteran when it comes to this whole gardening thing so I asked her advice on some issues. What to plant was one of my biggies. She told me what she had planted and what yielded the most crop. I asked her if she thought baby jars with the little peat discs were suitable for starter plants and so on.
On Friday night, after Ryan and I went on a date, we ran by Wal-Mart. I picked up half a dozen seed packets and little peat discs. On Saturday I planted our little seeds in the baby food jars. I planted lettuce, carrots, peppers, beans, tomatoes, and cucumbers. I am happy to report that after a day of sitting by a window with the blinds up I have some sprouts!
The second batch was planted on Tuesday the 8th. I need to plant more but I am low on baby food jars. Here are some pictures of the first batch that was planted.
