I’m so happy to have the opportunity to work with The Home Depot and receive products to expand our home garden. This is the second post in my series on starting seeds with help from The Home Depot.
I’ve been waiting all week to start our spring project: starting seeds for our summer garden. A short growing season in Northern New Mexico means that we have plenty of time to nurture tiny seeds until the plants can go in the ground mid-May. (Hey–I didn’t just come up with this info on my own. I’m no intuitive gardener. I utilize my resources, specifically, the regional info found via The Home Depot Garden Club.) Despite my brown thumb, I always look forward to having a garden in the summer. There is just quite nothing like walking a few yards from your kitchen, picking some fresh produce, and using it to prepare a family meal. Moreover, there is nothing quite like watching the miracle of energy and life compound before your eyes as a tiny seed takes shape into a luscious vegetable. Having a family to share it with makes all the difference: our son has a say in what he’d like to grow, and he gets very excited about the entire process, from seed starter to edible plant.
Today, my two biologists-by-nature boys (Hubs & B) and I are heading to our local Home Depot to pick out our seeds. We have our vegetable garden loosely planned, but something new always seems to catch our eyes when we stand before those beautiful displays of seed packets.
I hopped on The Home Depot’s website and was happy to find organic seeds from Seeds of Change available (in stores and online). We have planted these seeds in the past and are always happy to start with something labeled organic. We’ll definitely pick up a windowsill seed starter kit, too, to start our tomato seeds, pepper seeds, and squash seeds, as our space is limited. Who knows what else we’ll decide upon at the last minute? Check out The Home Depot Garden Club Pinterest Board for some creative ideas for your own garden or other outdoor space.
Never started seeds before? It’s super-easy (seriously!) and this photo tutorial is a great intro: Start Seeds with a Seed Starter Kit.
