Seedy Saturday!

Well, it is Saturday and I am into the seed catalogues – both paper and online. I sorted our seeds into groups and started to create some more organized notes.

My first activity this morning was ordering seeds from the Saturday Seed Company. Not a lot, but they will be interesting. plus I like supporting local businesses. This is what happens when you check your Facebook before you do your workout!

That led me to a blog called The Rustic Elk and 8 Vegetables I should start indoors.

And then I started creating a planning calendar – rough, but workable and in the early stages of development. I do know what I will be doing the week of May 24th, though, and that is a comfort!

I’m having some trouble posting pictures, which is okay. This is still a learning curve. The big photo is of my seeds, organized by type. There’s two shots of the notebook, which I’m sure will get fuller as the year goes on.

The containers are being prepared for winter seeding, an idea I saw on Savvy Gardening and will share with the other links!


The Saturday Seed Co I like the name, the slogan and the fact that he’s local. I ordered kale, leeks, lettuce, squash and onions.

My next stop was The Rustic Elk for their article on vegetables to start indoors. This was helpful for getting me to start the timeline for the next few months.

To do that well, I needed to know when the last frost day is for London-Middlesex and the London-Middlesex Master Gardeners helped me find that! (May 10th)

I’ll keep you posted with gardening news on Saturdays!

Still exercising, eating right and drinking my water!


About Marcia Stehouwer

I have a great life (most days) and a small budget, so being frugal is one of my favourite hobbies. I started this blog after procrastinating for 3 months, on April Fool's Day. I knit, I read, I knit, I work... I am also about a quarter of the way through my goal to lose 100 pounds. So between knitting, working, reading etc., I also do some walking! EDIT: 2021. I am not closer to my weight goal, but moving forward. The budget is still small. We are renting our homestead and progressing towards our family dream!
