Benjamin sifted more compost and finished filling our little seed cells.
For Home Evening, he and I stuck seeds in dirt. Joseph went into hiding until we were done. His main contribution is to keep asking what are we going to do with all these plants. My response is, "You seem to think they are actually going to grow." Joseph: "Well, we should have a plan B."
Two sets of 72 little seed cells in two seed starter systems - one with its own growing medium - not nearly as nice as our compost dirt!! - and a wet mat for easy and consistant watering. Thats 144!
We have no plan. Joseph and I had randomly purchased seeds. As it turns out, 12 packets. So Benjamin and I planted 6 of each system with each kind of seed. Sitting on a table by the front room window. No planning. We will just see what happens.
If we do get little seedlings, we will try to figure out what to do with them. I would like a garden box. (like Ruth) But 1) who is going to make it and 2) where would we put it? The backyard gets almost no sun. I am thinking that we are going to use laundry buckets as planters and line them up along the driveway/fence line. I have a few buckets, but not enough for 144 plants of any kind. Which means I need to do a lot more laundry.
