Lockdown Seedling Planting ?
From Sorie: We were able to get our seedlings going just before lockdown! There is so much reward in growing from seeds. I used Setha’s Heritage Seeds (from the shop), repurposed seedling trays from last year and filled them with Organic Seed Mix (also from our shop). My best helper is my daughter, she notices the beautiful things in life… like the different shapes and sizes in seeds!
It’s also my daughter’s duty to water our seeds every day and cover them at night with a towel to keep them cosy. We don’t have a greenhouse, so we built a small wooden box with some repurposed styrofoam and keep them next to a sunny window in the house. Because it’s not covered with plastic we spray them 6 times a day as water evaporates quick (we had plenty of time for this in lockdown!).
We also made a note of the day we planted them to see which ones made a debut first… it’s so much fun to watch!
