Gardening lessons....

Pin It

 There's peas and lettuce growing....slowly...I planted them several weeks ago....
I spy.....well....uhmm. Dirt? Yeah, there are suppose to be beats, bean, and carrots peaking through...... 
Learning to Garden in new soil lends itself to a certain learning curve. I have been watching my precious seeds for signs of life. They are coming albeit slowly. We added compost to the garden last year and again this year. Wondering what was going on I started my search. I found this great site "In the Garden Online". I wanted to pin it but you have to have an image. They have tables on seed germination. This is a sample of those tables. I wanted to keep track of it so here it is with the link so you can find it too. Seed Germination time...
