Getting Ready to Plant!

I don’t remember starting this post, but I do remember doing all of these things – probably in February.

I had intentions of starting some onions in the winter, but that did not happen. Maybe next year.

It is now April and spring is in full swing at our rented homestead. The reused Epsom salt jugs are functioning as greenhouses for my tomato seeds. So far I have 5 types seeded and still more seeds to plant. We do LOVE our tomatoes.

Organizing my seeds into baggies has also been helpful as I go out to plant. I just take the bag I need or the seeds I need and start to plant. Somehow I misplaced the book I was using for my journal but I wrote a lot of planting information on my calendar. We are moving forward!

Our seeds have come from the following sources:

Heritage Harvest Seeds:

Saturday Seed Company:

Vesey’s Seeds:

William Dam Seeds:

I am looking forward to sharing more of our gardening experiences this year!


PS: I watched a series of Youtube videos from VINO Farms on growing tomatoes. I now have a heating pad under my plants. We also follow his beekeeping videos. Stay tuned for more about that on Monday!

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!
